i think 7am PST to 5PM PST works out to 15:00 (or 3PM) utc until 01:00 (or 1am) utc.

the announcement seems to say 5pm (i think they mean 15:00, or 3pm) PST=utc-8, or PDT=utc-7

we are on PST, so UTC-8 did i have decaf this morning, or am i right?

Either way, you should check out the newest social networking site. With all the great features of digg and MORE. At, users submit their content to user-made communities. This new feature allows the website to be more navigable and less crowded with un-desireable content. Users can also remove the content from the site if they find it inappropriate or in the wrong category. I encourage anyone who has ever used digg, or others who are just interested in social networking to check out

here is one of the communities i made:

I agree that the fact that there is no support for European languages is a problem. I am sure that as you can see at: Mozilla will benefit a lot from adding these languages!
