Please run a test for me (it takes only minutes)
I don’t need more testing of this. Thanks to everyone who help me out with this! Great to see so many helpful people! Read my conclusion!
In my post on Python and time zones I mentioned that I hadn’t tried this on Windows yet. But now I have, and I have painstakingly and with help from several Mac OS X users come up with something that may be a way of getting the time zone information reliably on both Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. But of course, I’m not sure.
So therefore, I’d like to ask you, dear reader, to make a quick test for me. Especially if you live in a strange timezone, or have an unusual os, or weird time zone setup, or anything else.
The steps are as follows (the svn line gets cut off, but you can still copy and paste it):
svn co http://www.plone4artists.org/svn/projects/Plone4ArtistsCalendar/tztest/trunk tztest cd tztest python tztest/__init__.py
Whatever the output is, paste it as a comment on this blog post. If you get an unexpected result, i.e. and error, or if the time zone printed is wrong, then *please* leave a correct email address when you fill in the comment.
