Trying not to lose too much time checking out the global clock
thehtime.com/. Intriguing idea, the full article is also fascinating (medium.com/adventures-in-consu), especially the part about identifying days by the position of the earth relative to the sun. Reminds me of the hours I lost obsessing over calendars thanks to 99 percent invisible (99percentinvisible.org/episode).

@jamiem this is neat and i love seeing different ideas for this; on the other hand my first question is: how if at all does this address time zones that are not hour-integer offsets from UTC (notably, IST)?

@redoak Huh, I guess some problems are impossible to solve with any hope of being elegant. It looks like Htime takes these timezones into account: thehtime.com/location?name=Ind but for those on timezones with half hour offsets your are stuck doing math.
