What's the time? Ask WorldClock
« on: August 28, 2008, 10:31:27 PM »
i got tired of asking mouser the time before bombarding him with bug reports or feature requests so i googled and came up with this freeware which allows one to view different time-zones.

anyway the purpose is to kind of map out the different time-zones of dc members. this is just a sample i added. (ps. i haven't received any permission for those blanked-out members) do chip in and maybe we will have a collaborative time-zone map soon. :)

edit: updated with new screenshot.

What everyone fails to realize is that mouser time does not equate to a given time zone. He is seen up at all hours of the day which have no apparent rhyme or reason. He will often times be up and working at 2 in the morning and the next day be up at 8PM working on the same project with a period of only 3 hours of sleep. His randomocity is similar to the QBASIC command RANDOMIZE TIMER.

Sounds more like mouser's being mousered by ...eh... mouser (or his "alter" personality)  ;D.
