MetaFilter from the future. Says up at the top there (and on this post) that it's 1:41 PM PST. Not for another hour, I think. It is, however, 1:41 PM PDT.

attack of the grammar police!

Ok, I'll change it. I always think of Pacific Standard Time as being universal for the entire year, but I suppose it's Pacific Daylight Time at least six months of the year (or is PDT considered all year?).

PDT is only in effect while the clocks are Sprung Forward.

MetaStandardTime can be whatever you want.

Why can't we have MeFi time in Swatch beats? That'd be cool!

No, Brad, that would not be cool. That would be scary. Have my lessons about trusting the Swiss been falling on deaf ears?

What about a MeFi sundial?

Just change it to say "Pacific."

yeah, yeah, picky, picky. i just noticed it because metafilter kept showing up at the top of my bookmarks list with an updated time in the future.

UTC. Like what the BBC World Service uses. (And I bet that must fuck the heads of the British staff during the summer.)
