Help: Specifying a fixed point in time

It is often cumbersome to communicate points in time with people who are in other time zones than oneself (think of teleconferences, air travel arrival times, ...). This is actually one of the main reasons, why MyWorldTime.net was created. By specifying a fixed point in time on MyWorldTime.net, you can send along a simple link to everyone involved, and they can see what time you are talking about, without anyone having to calculate time zone differences.

And here is how it works:
Just append a slash (/) and then the fixed point in time (in your time zone) to the usual URL of your MyWorldTime.net clock. You can specify the point in time in a number of ways, for example:

ISO 8601http://myworldtime.net/example/2011-08-15T22:00:00+0800
Americanhttp://myworldtime.net/example/August_15_2011_10pm_Asia/Shanghai
Germanhttp://myworldtime.net/example/15.8.2011_22:00_Asia/Shanghai
UNIX timestamphttp://myworldtime.net/example/@1313416800
Weekdayhttp://myworldtime.net/example/Monday_10pm_Asia/Shanghai
Relativehttp://myworldtime.net/example/Tomorrow_2pm_GMT
Relativehttp://myworldtime.net/example/+2_days_2pm_GMT

... and many more (just try, you can't break anything)! All these URLs would open the MyWorldTime.net clock "example" with the time as specified, transformed into the time zones of the places shown there. MyWorldTime.net knows about summer time / Daylight saving time changes in all the time zones, and does the calculations accordingly.
