Datlight saving began at 2am in the UK and mIRC is a UK product. Makes sense to me :tongue:

Daylight savings ending in the US works fine here on mIRC smile Auto-adjusted and all.

At 2am last night my mIRC clock was changed to 1am.
In Sweden, and most of the rest of Europe, daylight savings starts at 3am, not 2am as mIRC thinks.


I was referring to that...

It is curious though as to why it is not adjusting the time...

Quote:

$daylight
Returns seconds offset if daylight savings is in effect, and 0 if not.


it returns 3600 (1 hour) which is right according to what it should do, which means that mIRC is seeing that daylight savings has changed.. but is not applying it for some reason..

I'm guessing this is a bug in 6.1x series as i have tested 6.02 and it says the right time.
Also this bug is not present in 5.91 so makes me think it is something new changed.

Quote:

In mirc 6.1 changes...

151.Time and date identifiers eg. $ctime() now return $null if an invalid time/date is specified.


maybe I'm wrong; but i'm just curious as to why it happened now!

Why can't mIRC just use the windows clock?

I dunno. I didn't write it :tongue:

A thought occurs: Does the BIOS clock get updated when the OS adjusts for daylight saving? Could mIRC be running from the BIOS time? Just a thought. I suspect it's not the case though...

That's what I thought, but that doesn't account for the time being updated if you change your Windows clock any other way...

maybe it's something to do with the 'direction' that the clock goes?

It went forward for me, y'see...

A bug is a bug! Apparently this particular one (one of many others) doesn't appear until Day Light Savings begins. Up until the clocks went forward, mIRC was displaying correct time. The same bug was also apparent for Canadian users until they went back to normal time at midnight on the 25th. An earlier post mentioned the absurdity of not using the Windows system clock, as it's glaringly obvious mIRC doesn't, and I have to agree.

Nope. Australia's timezones are +10 for EST, +9 1/2 for CST and +8 for WST.

And just to confuse the issue, some states don't have it (daylight savings) so that in effect creates two more timezones lol.

They are the wise states smile

Like you (and them), I too think that making everyone adjust their clocks for the sake of 1 hour is unnecessary. It only leads to confusion and bug reports, it seems...
