This tutorial shows you how to convert the time-zone timing to internet timing in Flash. Internet timing is like GMT (Greenwich MeanTime), but called BMT (Biel MeanTime), Switzerland, home of Swatch, the home of internet timing, the time formating appears like @500 (all hours in the day x 60(mins) x 60(secs)+ seconds)/86.4 (where 86.4 = 1(min)26.4(secs)), by that we're deviding the total number of seconds in the day to 1000 beats (1beat = 1(min)26.4(secs)), so @500 equals 12:00(in 24hrsFormat), and so on.

Look inside my .FLA for more notes.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
