Yeah it is pretty funny. phpbb is supposedly the world's largest online forum software, etc. supplier (according to their marketing criteria anyway :lol: ). Last I looked we had the most up to date version.

There are so many settings, yet a simple one like this should be automatic if you choose a time zone affected by DST and ST. :roll:

6PM EST?
For many of us, that is rush hour time, or at least transit between home and work. I know that I won't be at a computer then. A shame, I was really looking forward to this one. Ah well, I'll PM when I can, but I fear it shall be too late. I realize you can't make everyone happy though.

At first I thought this was unreasonable expectation because there are places in the US (maybe whole states) that don't participate in DST but don't have their own time zones. But it's worse than that - the question is actually:

Summer Time/DST is in effect:


Now I had originally checked yes because I live in NJ and we observe DST. Then I posted and the time was wrong - maybe because DST isn't in effect right now. So does that mean I have to go into the control panel twice a year to change this setting? That seems like something the software should address.

Note: The time on this posting is correct, but the previous one appears to have been posted at 4:30 pm. If I'm really going back in time I should invest in some raw puerh that turned out well.

Thanks for asking!

The tragic events in Japan have slowed but hopefully not stopped the next OTTI which was scheduled as the first is a series of super premium Gyokuro tastings.

Hopefully I will be able to pull it back together, but now there is the added distraction of the upcoming Shincha.

I would hate to scratch this tasting series as pretty much time and thought has already gone into it. :mrgreen:

Stay tuned ...........

OTTI is an excellent idea, opportunity to taste and learn for us, and for the tea shops advertise them selves.

I am a shincha virgin and I would like to change it this year but the situation is complicated as we all know.
On the other hand there is big selection of different teas from china or taiwan.

ShinChOTTI X 2! :mrgreen:

I am currently working on dual ... dueling ... concurrently running OTTI rounds. One round will be asamushi and the other will be fuka/chumushi. So, there should be a total of 10 shincha!

I am also beginning work on Chinese Green OTTI, Wuyi OTTI, and another Oolong OTTI. I would like to do a Darjeeling OTTI, we will have to wait and see.
