Damn, if we failed pitifully trying to do the crosswords, do we really have any chance with the chat trivias?

And btw, you do know that you've given away the whole point of the crossword with this topic, don't you?...

If I read it right, and it is like the previous contests, the prizes only go to the 2 pairs drawn after each week.

Pardon me... but unless I am grievously wrong and a definition has changed somewhere... UTC is GMT is "Zulu". The times noted as GMT in the first post are in fact BST/British Summer Time.

yes, UTC is BST in summer but NOT GMT. UTC is GMT in winter only... that's why there is GMT - Greenwich Mean Time AND BST - British Summer Time...

23:00 UTC is 19:00 EST, not 18:00 EST though... in summer, with daylight saving time.

Actually, UTC never changes. It is the international standard time used by the atomic standards around the world. BST is used in Britain during the summer, and differs from UTC. GMT may still be the name used in Britain for the time during the rest of the year, but basically it is an old term for essentially UTC (give or take a few leap seconds over the years), so we can roughly say that GMT is always UTC, and BST is never UTC.

And 23:00 UTC is always 18:00 EST (Eastern Standard Time) or 19:00 EDT (Eastern Daylight Time). It is just a matter of when, if ever, you use EDT.

Ender got it right, 4 pairs will get the prize. 2 are draw from a hat on August 23rd and other two on August 30.

Ender has it right - the places where GMT is used have now been changed to BST to avoid confusion. Britain is one of those difficuly countries that is only in 1 timezone, yet has 3 codes to describe in based on 2 seasons! It's all just designed to keep us on our toes I'm sure :D

Summer...Summer....

I'd play anything just to pull down the curtains on this wet and cold Winter we are having in Melbourne, Australia. regardless of what time the event is run.

Good ideas.
