Daylight Savings Time bug in Sunrise & Sunset times

I found a bug in the Sunrise & Sunset times lists for some people in Australia. It failed to show the time in Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) depending on your browser settings and instead showed it in Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST). Fixed now.

I’m still working on a way to just get the Sunrise and Sunset times automatically, either via a calendar or just a web service.

Melbourne Cup in not a National Holiday

Nup to the Cup

Just a reminder that the Melbourne Cup is not a National Holiday in Australia. It is a Holiday for Melbourne (and some parts of Victoria I believe). Other Victorian regions get their own “cup day” holiday.

However much of Australia has a long lunch, or even a party to watch the race. So there goes an afternoon of work in most places.

NSW-based filming is normally not affected by the Melbourne Cup.

Personally I’m Nup to the Cup guy. I don’t attend counter-programming as I think a boycott needs to not recognise the actual bloody event. I also don’t begrudge someone else’s decision to enjoy the event.
