# settlements in Caprivi unofficially will not because the sun there
# rises and sets earlier compared to other regions. Chief of
# Forecasting Riaan van Zyl explained that the far eastern parts of
# the country are close to 40 minutes earlier in sunrise than the rest
# of the country.

# From Paul Eggert (2007-03-31):

# The most interesting region I have found consists of three towns on the

# 50,000 sheep, about 100 kilometers long and 40 kilometers into the
# continent. The primary town is Madura, with the other towns being
# Mundrabilla and Eucla. According to the sheriff of Madura, the
# residents got tired of having to change the time so often, as they are
# located in a strip overlapping the border of South Australia and Western
# Australia. South Australia observes daylight saving time; Western
# southern coast.... South Australia observes daylight saving time; Western
# Australia does not. The two states are one and a half hours apart. The
# residents decided to forget about this nonsense of changing the clock so
# much and set the local time 20 hours and 45 minutes from the
# international date line, or right in the middle of the time of South
# Australia and Western Australia. As it only affects about 10 people and
# tourists staying at the Madura Motel, it has never really made as big an
# impact as Broken Hill. However, as tourist visiting there or anyone
# calling the local sheriff will attest, they do keep time in this way.

# which passes through eastern Western Australia close to the southern
# coast of the continent.
#
# * Border Village, SA also is 45 minutes ahead of Perth.
# * The locals call this time zone "central W.A. Time" (presumably "CWAT").
# * The locals also call Western Australia time "Perth time".
# I paid particular attention to the time kept there. There can be no
# dispute that UTC+08:45 was considered "the time" from the border
# village just inside the border with South Australia to as far west
# as just east of Caiguna. There can also be no dispute that Eucla is
# the largest population centre in this zone....
#
# It's not clear from context whether everyone in Western Australia
# knows of this naming convention, or whether it's just the people in
# this subregion.
# Now that Western Australia is observing daylight saving, the
# question arose whether this part of the state would follow suit. I
# just called the border village and confirmed that indeed they have,
# meaning that they are now observing UTC+09:45.
#
# (2006-12-09):
# I personally doubt that either experimentation with daylight saving
