Just a friendly reminder for folks new to the game and those of us that are "KI time comprehensionly challenged." :shock:
There is the most excellent, comprehensive time conversion chart at the Guild of Sleepers website is available for any individual to determine their physical location's and current time relationship in regards to conversion of KI time.
Props to alien for this. :wink: http://guildofsleepers.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=64

Even more frustrating is the way URU is coded.

Back in 2003, the MST/MDT switches were the first sunday of April and the last sunday of October.

The game hasn't been upgraded to reflect the new time changes. We have to adapt ourselves during few weeks each year. In game, I refer to the game's clock and subtract 2 hours which tells me exactly what time is it where I live. For the next weeks, I will have to subtract 1 hour only.

Or you could refer to your own clock. Less work! :)

Uhm, Christian Walther and I fixed that around a year ago. Let's not spread anymore misinformation, m'kay.

Nevermind... I just recall my memories of this "time gap" are from 2011.

I wasn't around before mid or late November 2012 on the MOULa shard so I can't say whether you're right or wrong on this.

I do remember that even back in late March 2012, the "time gap" was still there for North Americans not the Europeans. It's time for them to "enjoy" it :lol:

Or you just install Fox clocks in your browser and add KI time and you're done with it once and for all. :D

Yep, FoxClocks is the best ... I'm using it for years already and it'll show you the times at every moment from around
the world according to your chosen places, and it shows you if you tell it to do so DST changes with an asterisk ...
It is nicely hidden in my add-on bar and appears on mouseover ... :P

Below you can see how it'll look like and maybe serve you from now on ... Enjoy ... :D

Any browser is better than that one!

Awww ... really??? ... for me it was the best that happened to me, when I could finally
leave that uncomfortable monster IExplorer behind, and since FF I have comfortably
everything I could ever need at hand, when I'm 'underway' in the world wide web, haha ... :D

Chrome is probably better than IE. But FF is my browser of choice.

I hate DST changes; it's completely irrelevant in today's society, and more likely than not actually costs money instead of saving it. Not to mention that it cost me an hour of this 23 hour-long day.

What do you mean? Unless we're talking about a different fox, FireFox has always been one of my favorite browsers, and still is my second-favourite (after Google Chrome) for its openness, customization options, cross-platform nature and more (including some features I wish Google Chrome had).
