Here's something you may find useful if you use Win 7.
You can have Win 7 display KI time ... how?

* Right-click on your clock in the corner. Select "Adjust Date/Time"
* In the window that pops up select the "Additional Clocks" tab
* Tick a box for a clock and select it to (UTC-7:00) Mountain Time (US & Canada), call it "KI Time"
* Click Apply and click OK

Now when you left-click on the clock in the corner it should display two clocks, one is your local time, and the other is KI time

Heh, nice trick. I was aware of that function already, but I never found any use for it :)
The computer clock will probably adjust for DST though. I don't remember, does KI time also change with DST? If so, there shouldn't be any problems.

Yeah, I've been using this trick for years...As an Event Services employee, I use it to keep track of time where two friends are. Jeremy in Kent, UK and Samantha in the Taiwan/Japan (depending on time of year).

From there, I can pretty much figure out the time for the rest of ES (and Moula friends, too) with just a glance). Hawaii and Austrailia still give me some trouble though, as ES never had a large teams there, and I know all of them are now stateside.

(/me shrugs)

Anys, sorry all the rambling.

Yes, Christian Walther and I fixed the George W. Bush bug.
