Time Zone Conversion Chart
AS(D)T ES(D)T CS(D)T MS(D)T PS(D)T
I hope the above chart will aid you in determining time differences when making appointments with others to go on IRC.
For the sake of a quick conversion, it is normally not necessary to consider Standard or daylight time, when within the North American Continent. Start on the chart in your time zone, and count over to the zone you wish to convert to.... To the left, add an hour for each zone, to the right, subtract and hour per zone.
If in the Eastern region, and you wish to find out what time 8 o'clock your time converts to in Atlantic (our) time, add 1 hour. Therefore the time you tell your AST contact to be on is 9 o'clock.
If you live here (Atlantic time), and you wish to contact someone in the Central time zone, 10 o'clock our time becomes 8 o'clock CST. For a ten o'clock (Atlantic time) meeting, tell your Central time contact to meet you at 8.
