    Russia and Zone Time
    From: W F Jones
    Date: 2009 Nov 13, 08:11 -0500

    Russia (Medvedev) may seek to reduce the 11 time zones spanning the
    empire to as few as four zones.  If implemented, the changes will surely
    inconvenience not only the population but every PC in the world will
    need new operating system software updates.  The list of issues may be
    long.  Changes on this order should be handled by an international board
    since the scope may be very great.  Some small islands have abruptly
    changed boundaries to jump from one zone to another for sometimes absurd
    reasons so such decisions may be common enough.  Did not the US want to
    change the universal time reference recently as an improvement to the
    GPS system?  I seem to recall a world wide opposition to the move.  All
    this fuss about a purely fictional matter!
