Tip-Off Count Down
« on: January 10, 2007, 05:54:54 PM »
Love the tip-off count down that you guys have on the board for each game, but it is always off by an hour. Just thought I'd let you guys know if you weren't already aware.

Yup, it's only correct for Central time.  I've looked at other options, but for now if you're in another time zone, you'll have to compensate manually (that includes myself in CO). 

The technical details: It's based off your computer's clock, and there's no way to determine which time zone you're in - so it's always just aiming for a "target" time  which is + or - an hour or so depending on where you live, but is static on the script.

Ok - I think I fixed the underlying code to take your locally set timezone into account.  The countdown ticker should now reflect the actual time between now and the game.

You are the man - it seems to work for the Eastern time zone.  Thanks for fixing that.
Go Marquette!
