I was recently showing off ...
and I entered the following command
$ date && TZ=Asia/Moscow date
Tue Jun 19 15:48:14 EDT 2012
Tue Jun 19 19:48:14 Asia 2012
My initial reaction, besides some embarrassment
at getting the continent wrong (and most of
Russia's timezone are in Asia), is that this
is a bug in the coreutils date command.
However, I thought it would be of interest to
members of the list.
It's a double bug. It's printing out a
non-existent timezone, and it's using GMT for
CA45 09B5 5351 7C11 A9D1 7286 0036 9E45 1595 8BC0
