Newfoundland time, anybody? :)

I had to go and look that up:

"The Newfoundland Time Zone (NT) is a geographic 
region that keeps time by subtracting ​3 1⁄2 hours 
from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) during 
standard time, resulting in UTC−03:30; or subtracting ​
2 1⁄2 hours during daylight saving time."

WTF???  This is exactly what I mean on a geographicly 
dispersed network.  Do everything UTC and put clocks 
on your computer/wall/phone/whatever.  Then, like Job 
said, it's easier to coordinate with others not in 
your timezone.
