Etc.

Howdy all. IDF is, for most intents, really just a two-day event, maybe two and a half, and that’s it. Yet the thing is usually packed to the gills with meetings, news, and other things to write about. As is my usual pattern, I’ve spent the day filling up my queue with way too many cool things to write about and my evening feeling guilty about not having the energy to write about them. Ack.

Regardless, I will be back at the Moscone Center in the morning, bright and early, ready to produce another live blog—ably assisted by Geoff, who has been providing pictures. Tomorrow’s opening keynote speaker is the ever-colorful Mooly Eden, who will be talking about Ultrabooks. I plan not to shave before the speech, so I can use the edge of an Asus prototype to do the job later during the press demo session. If you can, point your browser to TR at around 9AM Pacific in the morning for the live blog and some excellent pictures of Mooly’s beret.

      +1. If someone sends me a meeting invite in PST I don’t attend it on principle as they’re being a douche.

        Outlook automatically converts appointment times to your time zone. If that’s too confusing, you can set it to display two timezones at once.

        Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) is the same as MST. That’s GMT -7, IIRC.

          Not everybody uses outlook at work. Some companies pay for e-mail hosting servers which can be accessed via browser.

            But you could setup and use Outlook to access your e-mail regardless…?

            And you could also install Windows 98 but that doesn’t mean it’s obligatory. Some really don’t like outlook, it’s a fact.

            With your attitude I assumed you believed it was an either or situation and mutually exclusive.

            ‘Engineer was trying to be helpful but you sound like you’ve got a grudge against Outlook you have to let us know about.

      It is easy enough to Google if you don’t just already know what PST is.

        • Arclight

        Easier to use GMT If i know my country’s GMT, no need to Google.

          Isn’t GMT supposed to be called UTC now?

          In any event, California is GMT-7 right now so 9 AM Pacific would be 4 PM GMT.

            Close enough as makes no odds. The difference is that UTC is atomic time, therefore differs by leap seconds they insert every so often.

            [url<]http://geography.about.com/od/timeandtimezones/a/gmtutc.htm[/url<] UTC, while based on zero degrees longitude, which passes through the Greenwich Observatory, is based on atomic time and includes leap seconds as they are added to our clock every so often. UTC was used beginning in the mid-twentieth century but became the official standard of world time on January 1, 1972.

    Ooh, a beret. With the Jobs turtleneck now retired, I guess that will have to fill the void.

      My vote is for propeller beanies.

        Microsoft actually gave those out at a developer’s conference once in the 90s. I think I still have one somewhere.
