    @Bob K Many in the US don't know their GMT. We refer to the time zone in the US as Eastern, Central, Mountain, or Pacific timezones. So a GMT would mean nothing to most Americans.

    That's what I mean with US centric. GMT is the standard, not any US time zone.

    And programmers are not normal US citizens. They (should) know the Earth is round (not flat), has time zones, Europe exists, and other languages have characters beyond a-z ;P

    Xojo itself has a GMToffset in the date object, not a USEsternTimeOffset: http://docs.xojo.com/index.php/Date.GMTOffset

    After all this is supposed to be a world wide virtual group, not a US one. Unless I misunderstood.

    As former military, when I hear someone give at time in GMT, I automatically think "Zulu" time.

    @Joseph C "Zulu" time.

    Care to explain ?
    I suppose this have nothing related to South Africa ;)
    (my military times are so far away)

    In my Xojo WebApps I use Metric Time UTC so it doesn't vary whether the server is in the USA, Europe or Asia. It is also unaffected by Daylight Savings time.

    That said, I would prefer we all use the GMT standard for our meeting times.

    Is it a requirement that presenters have 3 letter names only? :-)

    At least I'll qualify!

    @Emile S

    When I was in the military and conducting various missions overseas, it was easier to coordinate with others who are not operating in your "time zone" by referencing one specific time zone - "Zulu" (also known as GMT). That way no matter where you are, if you're using Zulu as your reference things can be coordinated anywhere.

    Here's a link to a military time zone map:

    Hi Joseph,

    Zulu stand for Z, Z for Time Zone. OK.

    A nap can be wonderful.

    Hi again.

    I want thank @Hal G and @Bob K for presenting at our first meeting this afternoon, as well as everyone who attended.

    Videos of both Bob's and Hal's presentations are now available . Due to technical problems (it seems that Zoom and the tvOS Simulator don't play well together), I'll be re-recording my Apple TV demo and will make it available soon.

    If you have any questions, feedback, or ideas, please let me know.
