24-hour mini contest - OneSadCookie - Sep 8, 2005 08:08 PM

We will be holding a 24-hour mini contest (no prizes) from 12.01am GMT, Saturday September 10. The theme is "Mechanical". The contest IRC channel is #idevgames-mini-contest on freenode.

If you're on the west coast of the US, that's probably 5pm Friday to 5pm Saturday.
If you're on the east coast of the US, that's probably 8pm Friday to 8pm Saturday.
Somebody please verify those for me Wink

Note to insomniacs: the intent is that whatever time-zone you're in, you should have 8 or so hours to do some programming in, even working around some other responsibilities, not that you should program for 24 hours solid Wink

Sounds interesting... maybe I'll enter if I don't fall asleep. 6 to 6 my time, I've been itching to do some programming anyways so I think I'll at least give it a shot Smile

Erm, but we can program for 24 hours solid, right? :-)

(Ok, maybe not 24 hours. Maybe more like 16-20)

OK, I'm in if I can think of a decent idea. Er, maybe even if my idea isn't all that decent Smile

I think you're correct. I'm UTC -6 right now in the Mountain time zone during daylight savings time, which adds an hour from being normally UTC -7, which would mean 6 pm to 6 pm local should be 12 to 12 UTC. Pacific (west coast) is behind me an hour, so that would be 5 to 5 there. Central is ahead one hour so 7 to 7 there. And Eastern time zone is ahead two hours, so 8 to 8 for the equivalent time period there, by my figuring. Arizona is on my time zone right now since they don't observe daylight savings time, and I think Indiana might be on Eastern right now too. I'm not totally sure about that though.


24-hour mini contest - OneSadCookie - Sep 9, 2005 09:04 PM

Whatever the times, it's been going for four hours now. Get cracking!


24-hour mini contest - Andrew - Sep 10, 2005 03:13 AM

PST is GMT - 8. In other words, 4:01 PM Saturday.


24-hour mini contest - AnotherJake - Sep 10, 2005 09:14 AM

Daylight savings time right now should make it -7, shouldn't it? Or is that PST in Canada, and you don't do daylight savings time there?


24-hour mini contest - SethWillits - Sep 10, 2005 10:35 AM

It is -7. That really through me off.


24-hour mini contest - Andrew - Sep 10, 2005 04:17 PM

Oh ya... I forgot about daylight savings time...

That means that British Columbia, Washington, California, etc. are all on PDT (-7) right now, not PST (-8). Technically, though, I said nothing incorrect in my previous post Wink
