I have an online meeting next Friday at 11am PDT. Or so the email from the organisers in Los Angeles tells me. Trouble is, I'm currently in Lisbon and I've no idea what time in Portugal corresponds to 11am PDT. To complicate matters, I'm aware that daylight saving time is due to change sometime around now, so even if I make an educated guess as to the time of the meeting I could still be wrong by an hour.
A little bit of web research led me to a really useful web site that can do all sorts of date and time calculations, as well as generate printable calendars. But most useful for me, there's a place where I can enter the date, time and timezone of an event, and it'll tell me the corresponding time wherever I happen to be. Which, in this case, will be 7pm.
If you ever find yourself in a similar predicament, go to https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meeting.html and you'll be sorted in no time. The system is free to use, and there's nothing to download or install as it's all done in your browser.
