This might not be improved much if at all under the above proposal, but it certainly wouldn't be any worse.

You're now saying UTC would be way better (not merely "not any worse") in this case. And I agree in this specific case. "1400-2300 from dates X to Y, 1300-2200 the rest of the time" is a tad better than "9-5 Eastern".

It comes down to how often one has to specify dates along with times. Of course, that stops being an issue if daylight tracking is also eliminated, but there are good arguments to track daylight.

Note: Your argument rests on the premise that UTC eliminates math is true. It's not true unless you only deal with people who also live somewhere that abandoned time zones.

Update: Added second and third paragraph.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
