Millie and Billy Weekend Shift Change

Post by countryroads » Tue Dec 13, 2011 9:34 pm

Hi Pasha,

On Monday, I was able to go for a nice bicycle ride. It was a sunny and warm day with just a little bit of wind. When you are able to get some exercise, you get very inspired.

The little problem that I encountered last weekend with Millie fading to Billy would not occur if UTC Midnight would be the shift change.

This is just a suggestion. :wink:

Hi Pasha,

With my testing every location and landscape that I could, last weekend I encountered the fading of Millie to Billy due to Tokyo being Monday and USA and Canada still being Sunday. We both agreed that this is a rare occurrence.

What I suggested and it is only a suggestion is to use 00:00 UTC (GMT) on Saturday and on Monday as the change of Millie to Billy (or Billy to Millie). There would not be a chance of fade. But this suggestion has one issue.

If you would use 00:00 UTC (GMT) on Monday (I am using Monday as an example), Monday white Millie would appear at the following locations at the location's time listed.
Monday 09:00 Tokyo, Japan
Monday 04:00 Saint Petersburg, Russia
Monday 01:00 Vienna, Austria
Monday 00:00 UTC (GMT)
Sunday 19:00 Mansfield, Ohio
Sunday 16:00 Roseville, California
These are the times that would display as these are all 00:00 UTC (GMT).

After I set up this chart on my own sheet of paper, it is probably better to leave everything as it is now. But you can think about this for later.

It was just a suggestion.
