Subject Re: futon barfs when os is configured for certain timezones ….
Date Sun, 15 Apr 2012 19:26:46 GMT
Hi, thanks for the welcome!  I'm actually not in in Thailand at the moment unfortunately --
but am on a ship in the southern atlantic … down around 50 S …  My dev station is probably
one of the more time zone mobile couch installations …  I only had to wait awhile before
leaving UTC+7 to allow couch to work again although that's probably not a universal solution.
 :)  Since I'm a bit delayed in responding, I'm now I'm in the land of UTC-2 and I haven't
had any issues with the time zones between -- although I haven't had to stop and restart couch.
