When's the deadline?

I mean, I know that it's the 31st. So does that mean the offer is over as soon as it hits the 31st or do you have until midnight of the 31st just before April 1st?

Although I really hope nobody is cutting it this close, note that we're only 4 hours off GMT right now, in the Eastern time zone.  That means the offer should be good until "2011-04-01 03:59Z".

Re: When's the deadline?

I'm EST, so the unmodified deadline works for me I think. And yes I am cutting it really fine, I only begun development a week or two ago, but I will meet the deadline. I'd like to submit it later tomorrow (as in the 30th).

Re: When's the deadline?

Haha, good point. Darn daylight savings...

 

I too hope nobody is cutting it that close, but I have no doubt there will be a few. In any case, whatever gets hardware in the hands of developers has my approval.

Re: When's the deadline?

On the vendor portal time is off by 4 hours. I am on central time in Texas and whenever I submit something it should be +1 on my time. However it is +5.

 

Here on the forum it is +1 so I am really confused about the timings.

 

Has anybody experienced this?

Try reading back through the thread you just posted in, so you know what was already asked and answered...

 

(Edit: thought this was a different thread where we'd just covered that.  See my followup below.)

Sorry about that... I thought this was the other thread, where I'd only just noted that the vendor portal uses UTC, which explains why you'd have a 4 or 5 hour time difference.

 

To be clear, the Terms and Conditions for the offer where showing EST, and converted to UTC the deadline was Apr 1 at 03:59.  The vendor portal shows UTC for all (as far as I know) of its times.  The forum probably shows either your local time (if you've told it your timezone in the preferences) or probably EST by default, if that's where the server is.
