AA> Why would anyone need to turn TZUTC off and on?
I appreciated such a facility with my Win32 JamNNTPd server
which ran on my dear-departed Win98se node. Without fail,
every summer it would indicate DST incorrectly. We
don't 'do' DST in this locale; never have, besides stoopid
trials. So I turned its TZUTC=off permanently. Sweet. :)
Ah.. then maybe a similar senario is considered in the next OpenXP.
But couldn't you have just adjusted to the correct time in the Win98se? I think
there was a little TZ fix program for Win98 available.
I never ran Win98se for BBS operations. I started with OS/2 2.1 and used the built-in Win support for launching win-specific bbs programs. I never seemed to
have a problem honouring ZMH that I recall.
But speaking of switching between DST and standard time, it's like sudden jet-lag with no opportunity to compensate; life continues on the same numbers of the clock, on schedule, while the body still "feels" like operating on the old schedule.
