'You being the experienced developer you know there has to be a list of time zones by country, all you need is that and calculate the difference between the timezones.'

Made me laugh so hard!

'At least your project wasn't needing to calculate the seconds between two points in time, dependent on time zone...'

Got this assignment by a sadistic teacher in the late 90s. Had a lot of fun failing that one and learned to appreciate a good library.
