    Should Ubuntu Add Seattle As A Timezone?

    Hey, I live in Washington state, and I'm tired of setting Los Angles as my timezone. (Because I want to stay as far away from Vancouver as possible.) But should Ubuntu really add Seattle as a time zone? (Portland wouldn't hurt either.)

    They should add Redmond.

    YES! I remember the first time I used ubuntu, I picked Vancouver because it had the same time as mine (I live in Spokane, WA), and I kept getting slow download speeds because I was downloading from the canadian servers.

    Are you sure thats because of the time zone you chose?

    I'm not saying I know any different, because I don't, but perhaps the Canadian servers were the closest to your location...

    I wouldn't imagine servers recognize mans borders.. And Spokane is not that far from Canada...

    But I could totally be wrong about that. I hope someone that does know what they are talking about chimes in though. Now I'm curious.
    If at first it doesn't work.. throw a temper tantrum, rant about how it sucks, and hate it forever.

    They should add Minneapolis, too. I have to always set to Chicago. The next closest city is in Canada.

    [edit] actually, if they added the capital city from each state/province/what-have-you, it would be cool.
