    Default Clocks in Europe have gone back

    A reminder, in case anyone has to contact people in Europe - the UK is back on GMT as of this last night, and other places have also shifted by an hour.

    This may come in handy. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

    Can we change the title to "European Union" clocks?

    A good point! I've edited my first post to be more inclusive.

    We shouldn't, as not all of the EU countries had DST.

    Which is why I said what I did - I think that covers the fact that some did, some didn't.

    And again - which is why I tied my post to rupicola's but not to yours.

    So perhaps we need to change it to "some countires broadly located in the region containing many members of the European Union, but not exclusively those countries, states or other geo-political entities, may, or indeed may not as may be the case, have adjusted their offset to GMT by an hour."

    Should clarify things.

    Isn't GMT an obsolete term? Isn't it now UTC?

    And I don't think France has adjusted its clocks to UTC; but it has "adjusted its offset towards UTC by an hour".

    And this thread's intention, being translated, just boils down to, 'Don't wake anybody up when they'd rather you didn't!' Oh, what the heck, phone 'em anyway...
