    The Time Zone setting at the RHP has only whole numbers (+1, +2, +3 etc.). There's no time zone setting such as +1/2. I would request Russ to introduce the 'halves' too. Please

    the time zone settings are also limited to just 12 hours ....
    some older people need to adjust for 30 or 40 years, i could probably do with 15 or 20.

    a 92 year old told me : his new wife is ok, he is starting to get used to her ... his old one left him for another man during the war ... the second world war ... he married his new one straight away: no point wasting time.

    If not mistaken, Flexmore doesn't realise there are people living in a time zone with an half an hour offset.

    Incorrect. All International Time Zones have "hour increments" If a particular area within that zone has a 1/2 hour setting it is a local adjustment only - usually based on a daylight saving factor.
    Here in NZ we are 13 hrs ahead of GMT due to the 1hr NZDST that prevails, and all provided for in the RHP time zone settings.

    In Newfoundland, they are 1/2 an hour off as well. Look it up.

    So dear Russ,

    After all these posts, can we not have a 'half-hour' setting too? In addition, I think some people need a 'thirteenth hour' too.
