GMT+1 would be easiest for me of course, but it wouldn't make much sense to others. GMT +-0 seems tge best for everyone.


Agreed. I always have trouble calculating timezones, but GTM is easy. To me at least, living at GMT +2 :)

I'm at GMT +2 as well, but since I have relatives all over the US, I know what the time diff is.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

yeah, EST is GMT-6 or something, but US central, well, dunno. That, and what is easier, looking up what the difference between GMT and some other timezone is, and then doing the math, or simply saying GMT.

Sounds like someone's still annoyed that Washington didn't get the meridian :D

Go with GMT if you need to pick a standard time. It's the only one that makes sense especially considering that most people not in America figure out EST by simply subtracting 5 from GMT anyway.

Speaking of that are there any loading freezes in 3.6??
Cause, There's so much it has to go through that it most of the time freezes

I was asking if 3.6 freezes when loading, if anything has been fixed or something

Did you catch that thing in the last build available where in OpenGL the flashing lights on.... whatever the first fighter to display in the tech room is, will create white squares instead of the coloured lights?

You need any more people to try and repeat the problem? See if you can find any common ground?
