Easier to simply start scheduling things in UTC. I run an
international Dungeons & Dragons campaign with sessions every Sunday
at 02:00 UTC, and nobody needs to be confused by time zones. (The
server displays UTC time, so it's easy for anyone to see; for
instance, it's now Mon 02:48:09, so session time was about this time
yesterday.) Civil time can do whatever it likes, just as long as
everyone knows that the meeting is based on UTC.
