Hawaiian Time

After initially starting this blog on Eastern time, the blog founders have decided to change the setting to be on Hawaiian time.  This will start as a one-week trial, but if people like it, it will stay.

There are a few reasons for this, and we may come back and update this post with some of those reasons.

This blog’s founders are split across multiple time zones. For any chosen time zone, there will be commenters here who are commenting from a different time zone than the blog.

Two of this blog’s founders hail from Hawaii, so that time zone is as good as any other. We were finding that if we posted a new daily open thread just after midnight Eastern time, it was just after 6pm the “prior” day in Hawaii. Now, if we post a new daily thread just after midnight Hawaiian time, that is equivalent to just after 6 AM Eastern. So that seems like a good time to start the “new day”.

Also for our friends in Hawaii, who feel that they are “always last”, we offer this:

And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them,
“If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.”

Mark 9:35
New King James Version (NKJV)

    It took some doing but I figured it out.

  2. Well, I think it’s working just fine. But if anyone is wondering, you need to add 6 hours to Hawaii time to get Eastern U.S. time, 5 hours for Chicago, 4 hours for Denver and 3 hours for California. At least that’s the way it is now, in the summertime of 2012. When daylight time changes again, who knows what will happen, since a few states don’t change. Results may vary! 🙂

  3. Ahhhh, Home sweet home. And on Hawaiian time too. 🙂
