Title: powershell and utc time aka greenwich london uk
Post by: herge on January 16, 2013, 11:14:23 PM

 Hi are we ready for a rant!

 Windows has made a new batch window called powershell.
 it has trouble formatting utc time.
 you can use get-date and try to use .touniversaltime()
 touniversaltime() does work but you can't format it.
 i e it is short format i e not long form.
 this is long format.

  Wednesday, January 16, 2013 6:42 AM

 write-host -nonewline helps a bit but not ideal.
 so we used and ancient borland c compiler to fix the
 bloody problem.

 touniversaltime is similiar to gmtine in the program
 below it tells the time in England.
 Also MAKE sure you have set the environmental variable
 TZ to your Time zone. i e Control Panel, System
 do it before you open dos box i e cmd.exe or powershell.

Hi again:
The traffic is killing me but just because powershell is little difficult to use.
 And the documentation at the big m$ is at they useless standards.
 It it don't work print it anyway. you will need /CLR option to run it.
 So heads up!
 Tested on 2008 C from Microsoft so please PRAY! and Windows XP SP3
 it will complain about localtime but that problem is in 2038 so i think we
 can wait another twenty years maybe?

if you are doing greenwich time, why not use TIME_FORCE24HOURFORMAT

Code: [Select]
        pushad
        mov     eax,esp
        INVOKE  GetTimeFormat,LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT,TIME_FORCE24HOURFORMAT or TIME_NOTIMEMARKER,NULL,NULL,eax,32
        print   esp,13,10
        add     esp,32

 Hi dedndave:

 The problem is that the format options for .touniversaltime()
 in powershell totally are sub-standard even for m$.
 It was easy for an old c compiler and Borland is really old.
 
 I will try out your code tomorrow.

 Regards and thanks herge

GetTimeFormat is actually intended to retrieve the local time format
however, you can also use it to get current local time
it can also be used to format time, according to a format string

GetSystemTime can be used to get UTC (GMT) time and store it in a SYSTEMTIME structure
you can then use GetTimeFormat with a format string to format it

 That was not bad, only forgot the environmental variable
 TZ .I suspect if you don't come from a DOS old OS you
 will never heard of it.
 I am in EST are you in MST or PST? (Time Zone)

you may be right, as far as "official time zones"
but - the correct time was critical to navigating ships in days of old
as i recall, they tried to have a very accurate clock that kept London time
(actually, it was Greenwich time, the 0 meridian line passes through Greenwich)
the more accurate your clock, the closer you could determine your longitude

that was before Einstein got involved
he proved that a clock in motion kept time differently than one that was stationary   ::)

That's intresting my Dad use to install RADAR for Raytheon

Post by: dedndave on January 17, 2013, 04:04:44 PM
not a big fan of edison
i think he stole more ideas than he originated - lol

he did, however, invent the light bulb and the cylindrical phonograph
the cylinders may have done better, but he wouldn't sell any rag-time music - only conservative music
with disks, you could get the music you wanted to hear, so they caught on
they probably would have taken over eventually, anyways, because they were easier to store and handle
but cylinders do offer a slight technical advantage in that the track has constant length

another guy, DeForest, added the control grid to the Fleming Valve
that is what really made tubes do something
before that, they were just rectifiers
with a control grid, they could be used to amplify - a big step
Brits still call them "valves", though   :P

at the turn of the century, there was a lot of patent grabbing going on, with regard to electrical discovery
also - a lot of mud-slinging - anything to discredit the opposition

 He made a light bulb that you could use, the first light bulb did
 not last very long?
 Did all sort of electrical work i e Con Edison I hopte I got the
 name right.

Title: Re: powershell and utc time aka greenwich london uk
Post by: dedndave on January 17, 2013, 11:28:38 PM
this is true - the first light bulb didn't last long at all
he found a filament alloy, largely by trial and error, that lasted

edison is credited with many patents
i think he still holds more patents than any other individual
this may have changed - i'm not sure
but, most of his patents were based on someone else's work
he knew more about the patent process than most people at the time
that would make him more of a patent lawyer than an inventor - lol

the fore-runner of MP3's...
you are thinking of Alexander Graham Bell   :P

there were many innovators at that time

some were "advanced experimenters", some were true scientists

 Hi Powershell Fans:
Code: [Select]
## GMT aka UTC aka Time in ye old London town England(UK)
Write-host(get-date -date -format U),"UTC"

Also always save as "Filename.PS1"
some editors have a nasty habit of adding .txt
The quotes are important!
so you get London.PS1.TXT and Powerdhell Goes Nuts
You will get four lines of gibberish that will not help you!

i used to visit CHU at 7.335 mHz (they broadcast on a couple other frequencies, as well)
a few years ago, they expanded the international broadcast band in ITU regions 1 and 3
CHU experienced some interference, so they moved to 7.85 mHz or something like that

here in the US, we have WWV (and WWVL, WWVB)
they broadcast at several frequencies, most notably 2.5, 5, 10, 15, 20 mHz
WWVL is at 20 kHz and WWVB is at 60 kHz

you can see what CHU sounds like, here...

heathkit used to make one we called the "lunchbox"   :P
they made them for 3 different ham bands and one for cb, too
back then, probably the cheapest way to get on the air
