When I connected my new tablet to the Internet for the first time (and consequent times), I expected it to automatically change date and time to match the time zone I'm in (IIRC, it asked me for time zone when I turned it on, but I could be remembering wrong). It hasn't.
I'm setting up a EC2 instance on Amazon AWS running Windows Server 2012. I'm going to have users remote into this server to run Quickbooks Enterprise. I'm having issues with Quickbooks because it wants to use the internet connection and the Internet Zone setting is set to High, Quickbooks recommends Medium.
seems the new version of php in 13.10 does not like not setting the time zone when you call the date function
i could just get the time zone from the client, but i am using the number as a id and i don't want to allow duplicates
extremely unlikely to have more than one time zone for this use, but rather not let it me possible.
i came up with this code (don't care about windows server support)
A have a dual boot system: Ubuntu and Arch. Ubuntu was installed first. A while after installing Arch, I've set up its clock because it was 8 behind my current time zone (my time zone is gmt +8). I don't remember the actual command, something like date --set "xxxxxx". However, I do remember that I specified the time zone during its installation (gmt +8, Hong Kong).
