Merry Christmas!

First, I’d like to say Merry Christmas to anyone who reads this here blog! I’m not sure if I’ll have time to post tomorrow. Most likely not, because of the way things usually go.
Secondly, if I have to explain CET time again, I just might keel over and die. To avoid that outcome, I wrote an explainer. OK, here it goes. In order to explain CET, I needed to talk about UTC, just a warning.
.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_European_Time What we first have to discuss is UTC time offsets. UTC is the universal time standard. You start with UTC 0:00 which is Greenwich Mean Time.
You should know that on standard time Pacific time is UTC-8. When DST occurs, it’s UTC-7. Eastern time is UTC-5, and so is US Central time.
Right now, Berlin,and Leipzig, (where CCC, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_Communication_Congress, is taking place,) are also on CET standard, which makes that UTC+1. That’s 9 hours ahead of Pacific. Here’s a for instance: Let’s say it’s 2:00 A.M here. It’s 11:00 in the morning CET.
The CET simulation works mostly the same. I’m going to bed at 7:00 here so I can get up at 11:00 there. It’s sort of like preparing for a trip without going anywhere. Yep, it definitely takes some adjusting, this is partly why I started on the 19th. The other reason is when following international legal cases, they tend to be in the same timeframe. the UK is on GMT, but they start their hearings at 10:00 A.M there which is 2:00 A.M here.
