smartalekrj what do you mean est?

I would assume he means the east coast of the US. In the colonies (US and Canada) We have EST (Eastern Standard Time), Central, Mountain, and Pacific. There is a time zone to the east for New Brunswick and Nova Scotia which is called, I think, Maritime. Alaska has it's own time zone (I don't think there is any other land mass in that time zone other than a few assorted islands). I don't know the names of the time zones for Alaska and Hawaii.

I do know how Alaska got it's name. It's a perfect example of a language where there are verbs and few nouns. Everything is an ongoing process. Alaska is a transcription of the Russian pronunciation of an Inuit word meaning (approximately), "That which the force of the ocean is directed against." Now isn't that a delightful bit of trivia! <G>

Corrections for the topic starter.

3x US Pacific Coast

2x England

2x U.S. East Coast

Romania

US western time ==> US/Canada Pacific Coast

U.S. Central Time Zone ==> US/Canada Central Time

<snip>

Eastern standard time ==> US/Canada East Coast

I know it's confusing for all you non-Americans. <G> By the way, where are the Chinese, "Russians" (I use it generically, I don't want to offend anyone), and Aussies?? They all have multiple time zones. What do they call them?

US (-7 GMT)

My specific state in the U.S.(Arizona) doesn't recognize the 'time change' the rest of U.S. does.... so even though I fall in the Mountain Time zone, it really depends on the time of year.

So to make it easy, I just roll with GMT... of which I am -7 :) Heh

i am from england.

perhaps you could include a list of what each timezone is compared to gmt, that way you could easily see what countries like romania compared to the gmt timezone are currently at.
