    What timezone is WET?

    In MSN Messenger, the time at which alerts are recieved is given in MET - does anyone know what timezone this is? I've tried comparing times when an alert comes in, but I've waited several days and I'm never online when one arrives.

    I believe he meant that as a joke.

    From my search at google it says Middel East Time. Not 100%, but it could be the answer.

    I don't know what it is called, but it is the internet standard and taken from GMT.

    WET is Windows Exiting Time and is the time left until Windows crashes again. The reason why WET is important is that WET is not a constant time, each time you startup your system it may have a different value. So keep an eye on WET and be sure that you have saved all your valuable data before Windows exits.
