Q & A " I have no idea what to put as my time zone on this forum."

The time zone list is a good example of the danger of too many choices. Actually, there's a purpose to it. Not all countries, regions or cities are on the same clock as their neighbors. That's even the case here in the US. Have a look at this US time zone map and you'll see what I mean.

However, for most of us, the choice is simple. If you remember the old time zone maps from the early days of TV news, there were four cities that were the markers for the four US time zones. Choose one of these four, depending on your time zone.

  • Eastern - New York
  • Central - Chicago
  • Mountain - Denver
  • Pacific - Los Angeles
