Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST) within one country

I'm for not doing it at all, then. I'm happy to make the adjustment manually twice a year, knowing that that the post time is close enough for most practical purposes, as over against phpBB having to know if and how DST is handled all over the world and having to do the calcs on every post date in ...

Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST) within one country

Who cares whether a post they made a while ago has the correct time or not? To be honest with you, I doubt that people most of the time don't look at the times on posts, and when they do it will be the previous post in the thread. Well, for one, the person who started this thread cares. Call me ana...

Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST) within one country

Ok. I guess that's where we disagree. To me, the negligiable time increase it totally worth the times being displayed the way they should be. That isn't even taking into consideration the time already spent on the current 2.2 to render the times, making the increase even more negligable. Unfortunate...

Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST) within one country

And then there are individual states that have there own thing too. This is why many feel that auto DST just wont work. You would have to have a list a mile long of locations for each user to select from. See the time zone selection within windows. It is extremely simple. Granted there are quite a ...

Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST) within one country

Well you can't just go by country. I live in the US. There are at least 5 different time zones, so there would have to be a more specific option for some areas. I don't know how it couldn't go fully automatic. The whole point would be to have it render every date based on the time when the post was ...

Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST) within one country

Right. The way I see it, TZ would be a multidimensional array of regions that the user chooses from. There would be a different array for every place with different timezones/DSTs.

Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST) within one country

Who said there had to be a database workload? You could just include $TZ arrays for each location and use the one you need. (Which would probably be more secure anyway, since there is eval'ed code) But if you wanted to put it in a db, I don't forsee any signifigant performance detriment (it might ev...

Re: Amazing work :)

Yes. I never pay attention to version numbers any more. Especially after Winamp 5. :?

Re: Does phpBB2.2 have...

I seem to recall it being mentioned a while ago that it would be included, but I haven't seen it in CVS yet.
