Nice one Mike. I always thought the split zones were silly.

Adding to the confusion here in the States, some States have more than one time zone (Indiana is the one that pops to mind) and not all States go on DST in the summer (all of AZ, except the upper right corner, for example).

I thought Indiana changed to a more standard zone, at least the part that was off.

edit- ah yes, still some (county) holdouts.

At least you never had to deal directly with that time of the month.

I often wonder if the P stands for Perpetual <duck>

I think I was there at the time. Not sure. It was very confusing.
