That the hell is UTC? Are you trying to make it harder for us to work out what time the maintenances are? What happened to GMT? I'm in Australia and have relatives in England so could easily work out the times for maintenance.

Remember when they used to list several time zones, that was great but that was clearly too much work for them.

I had to go look it up cause I wasn't familiar either, but UTC is GMT from what I'm seeing.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Can't wait.

Gonna be spending all day in the designer, for sure.
I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest, honestly.

It's the honest ones you want to watch out for. Because you can never predict when they're gonna do something incredibly stupid.

It's the new trendy, politically correct way to say GMT.

I wholeheartedly agree with this poster.

Having to flip open a new browser and type in "UTC to EDT" took entirely too long, something like 10 seconds, and the resulting page which clearly instructed me to subtract 4 hours from the UTC to obtain the EDT time was like reading a graduate thesis in quantum mechanics.

Please, in the future, list the times of upcoming maintenances using a full color, detailed chart outlining all 24 time zones around the world and what the appropriate start time should be.
