Hi Stefan I think the server time should be the local time where the server is standing - physically/touchable. If i check the time from Indonesia it shows me the local time from Indonesia so i still have to calculate when the next hostrun is due. Best would be to add the local time in Germany and display both. It is not so important but it would be nice to have...

I was assuming that I was doing everyone a favour by showing times in local time (which is actually a short piece of JavaScript running on your browser, because the server doesn't know your local time): you look at the web page, then at the corner of your screen - voila. Other VGAP servers show times in their local timezone and I never know what that means to me now. What am I missing?

The server itself runs on Greenwich time and doesn't care about timezones.
