I’m just starting to communicate with a potential client in Singapore. I knew there was probably a significant time difference from my local Las Vegas/Pacific time but I wanted to get a better bead on what business hours/timeframe might be best for both of us, so that I could set it up on my laptop.
I found this really good tool to calculate the time difference for me, beyond “Singapore is x hours ahead of you”. I hate doing time-math if I don’t have to. And I was certain there was an app for it online somewhere. I didn’t have to search too far to find this site: Timezone Calculator
Free; No download required; easy to use. This is something that will come in handy for knowing when the client will likely be online, and the window that is most convenient for a virtual meeting via Skype, GoogleTalk, GoToMeeting, etc.
There are a lot of other tools, but this is the first one I found today that seemed to serve my need.
