**Time for the yearly warning**

Its time once again to get IGG posted times all messed up... hooray!

This time it is really bad because there is 3 weeks between the USA and Europe time change!!!!

USA & PARTS of Canada:  Changes time on Sunday March 10th

Most of Europe:  Changes time Sunday March 31st

China; Uses standard (winter hours) all year.

Just remember to pay attention to the time zone given in any announcement:
EST = Eastern Standard Time USA (New York Winter Hours)
EDT = Eastern DAYLIGHT Time USA (New York Summer Horus)
GMT = Greenwich Mean Time (England Winter Hours)
BST = British Summer Time (England Summer Hours)

IGG Usually gives times for events in EST... so don't forget to add 1 hour to make that EDT.
And in Europe wait 3 weeks before you start doing the summer conversion math.

So pretty much every event will happen 1 hour later than it does now (if your country observers Daylight Saving Time).
