Chilean daylight savings time 2020

Post by tiagoabner » Mon Aug 31, 2020 12:33 pm

Hi, fellow forumites.

Just a quick reminder that on Sunday, September 6, will be the first day of daylight savings time. On Saturday, 9/5, when the clock moves from 11:59 pm to midnight, all clocks are to be advanced one hour, straight to 1 am.

Just a quick reminder. I don't think there will be that many of you taking early Sunday flights during a pandemic, but you never know. :lol:

Another time change = another rant by me.
There is only one location on the internet publishing Chile's official time. Here, at https://www.horaoficial.cl
.

.
What happens when that page is accessed is that a bunch of javascript is downloaded and run on your computer.
The browser periodically requests UTC time, and the script frigs with it to produce the displayed values .
That script is edited in advance to match the latest Congressonal time transition decision. Must really give them a little power trip to know that people all over the world, even the likes of Google and Microsoft have to make manual time tweaks to comply with their decrees.

My solution. But I too will have to adjust it manually (in a javascript as well).
