I booked tickets for an event run by the local City, at 1pm on a coming Thursday (AEST, UTC+10). I used a gmail address to mail the tickets.
So far, so good. Tickets received and printed so my wife and her friend can wave them at the door.
Then I get a notification that the event has been added to my google calendar.
I take a look, and there is an event with that title, scheduled for 3am the following day.
Ho kayyy. So someone doesn't understand timezones...
So I go to fix it.
No, you can't reschedule that event....
I can't imagine big G being un-TZ-aware, so I'm guessing the booking service lives somewhere on the east coast leftpond.
