I'm in PDT (UTC-7) currently, and will be in PST (UTC-8) in the winter. It's 12:59 PM right now.

Though the last time I was on IRC was November.

France has Daylight Saving Time except we just call it "Summer Time" and "Winter Time".

Parts of Australia have DST. Currently not on DST, though.

So if I'm at GMT+10 now, is AEDT GMT+11?

Yes. EST is GMT-5 and EDT is GMT-4

I'm in the Eastern (US) time zone, which is currently in DST.  Thus, for now, I'm in GMT -4.

At the risk of causing a flame war...
Also, please note that this isn't directed at anyone in particular. Apologies to Darkeforce for picking it out on his post.

I really hate the arrogance that the US in particular shows by naming its time zones "Eastern Daylight Time" or the like. This shows its self in other names, especially sports; "National Football League", "National Basketball Association", "World Series". I'm sorry, I didn't know that the only possible "national" reference here was the USA, or that the world was the USA. I mean, it's not like... say Japan... has anything to do with baseball. Sad

We're talking about sports and names right now, right? So I just have to ask this, because it's the season: Why is Roland Garros, a tennis championship, called after an aviator?

Unfortunately you are going to have to blame a Canadian this time, Sir Stanford Flemming.  The time zones were first
used by both Canadian and US Railroads in North America and the names were chosen to reflect the international
use limited to North America at the time.  Europe was still using multiple meridians.  Europe and Australia didn't come on
board until later with the Meridian Conference.

By the way, GMT officially ceased to exist in 1967, but it is taken to mean UTC in colloquial usage (and by the BBC).  In
marine, aviation and astronomical circles, GMT means UT1(mean solar time) which differs from UTC by up to 0.9 seconds
(An error of up to about 1/2 km in navigation and a pain to deal with when handling occlusion calculations).

I don't like signatures, so I'm not making one.
