Evo Countdown Timezone Bug


#1

Hi there!

I’m from The Netherlands and I noticed a huge bug on http://evo2k.com/live/

It’s counting down from 364 days, 23 hours, 25 minutes and 30 seconds… That’s not right?

Just before midnight it counted down properly. But… This is UTC+2. Central European Summer Time. We are 9 hours ahead of Las Vegas’ time.

Something says I’ve got to wait another nine hours before I can watch some content on the live-Evo-page?

it counted down to the 17th in your timezone you are already there so its already running for next year i guess.

Same here.


#4

Evo 2010 live stream starts tomorrow! :lol:


#5

Somebody fucked up big time :rofl:


#6

9am in -7gmt Nevada time,
so GMT start time is 4pm July 18th… You can figure out the your start time in by using the GMT.


#7

Why did the counter hit zero at 0:00 midnight then? It should reach zero at 4 pm GMT, right?


#8

just ignore it… 10am pst it starts


#9

9am Fri 17th Nevada isnt that 4AM Saturday 18th GMT? not pm… or 4pm 17th i dunno lol i think 4pm 17th something is wrong , early morning

10am in USA is ± 19h/7pm friday in europe i think.
Gonna suck that most matches will be at night then:(


#11

The schedule says 9 am?

The counter reacts to your own PC’s time, and it hit 0:00 on the timer when your PC hit Friday the 17th.

Nothing would be streaming at midnight in Vegas, that’s just silly.

It’s going on at 10:00am PST.

#14

Because whoever the website maintainer is was LAZY. It’s a simple bit of javascript, but whoever implimented it, couldn’t be arsed to set the timer zero to 0900PDST, instead of 0000PDST.
