Remember way, way, way back when Microsoft shipped Windows 95 ®?
Anyway, we had the control panel option where you’d see a map for the
timezone and clickity-click on the map in a timezone area, and that would highlight
the map along a border-line and select your timezone for you.
Wasn’t that cool? Heck yeah. I thought so. We changed it
though. We still had the map, but you couldn’t clickity-click on the map and
get a highlighted area. Clicking did nothing for changing your timezone.
Wanna know why?
Well, there is a county, and I won’t mention it’s name, but said country is
in constant border disputes with another country. Microsoft drew the border-line
“incorrectly” according to said country.
They threatened to never, ever, ever allow us to sell that software in their
country if we didn’t “fix” the border-line.
We learned not to highlight timezones and border-lines any more.
