    Lu:

    Here is what you said

    "When keeping civil time, time zone designators (eg, time zone "U") are not relevant. What is relevant, though, is our Zone Designator. So, yeah, we on the West Coast of the US just slipped from ZD +8 to ZD +7. But unless we're at sea keeping ship's time, the "U" designator is not relevant"

    Your comment confused me because we went from +7 to +8, and according to
    what you wrote it contradicted that.

    Am I still missing something, shouldn't you say we slipped back to +8?
