Zalanthan Time Converter
« on: December 05, 2016, 12:05:29 AM »
I was fiddling around with this for a bit (a horrendous while, because my math needed refreshing). Thought I'd put it up, for scheduling purposes and what not. It provides a means for converting Zalanthan time to RL time and vice versa. It should be accurate, but let me know if something seems off. I didn't test the Zalanthan to RL time conversion much, so that in particular may or may not be wonky.

It uses moment.js for formatting the times and dealing with timezones and bootstrap-datetimepicker for the time picker.

I based some of the formulas off of Marauder Moe's spreadsheet, which is awesome, by the way.

HA! I did one of those a few years ago (dunno if it's hosted or anything). Good job! It's never seemed to catch on ICly though.

On Zalanthas most sweat would evaporate instantly and cool you easier, because there is no humidity. The extra air-flow of a kilt would also keep things dry.

I saw mention of your script somewhere, actually! I tried looking for it for... er, research purposes, but no dice. And thank you!

Yeah, going "about 2 weeks from now" or something like that IG is way more convenient than pulling out a calculator and trying to narrow down what that might be in Zalanthan time.

Ah, thank you!

Not a problem! (oh how I lie to myself)

So cool.

Unless I did it wrong, Maliflax's question from your app yields: Jan 8, 1855.

Heh.

That's if the changes staff put years back (?), which basically locked the way IG time translates into our time, is not accounted for.

Seems to be working well from what I've done with my (minor) fiddling!  You even added compensation for Daylight Saving's!  It even converts properly years into the past, it looks like.

Random Sidenote - According to the thing, the world began in 1811, which I think is really cool.

If you put a negative number into the Age, you get fun results.
