European day cycle

Question

GMT+1 is not a cycle.  It is a RL time zone.  There is no connection between the apparent time of day in SL and the time of day anywhere in the real world.  Every "day" in SL is four hours long (three hours of daylight and one hour of darkness).  The "day cycle" refers to those four hours, not to time on your RL clock.

Having said that, ... Linden Lab is in California, USA, so its local time is Pacific StandTime (GMT-8).  For the convenience of residents who may be in very different local time zones, we refer to Linden Lab's local time as SLT (Second Life Time).  Again, that has nothing to do with hours of light and darkness in world -- the "day cycle".  It is only a convenience for compafrison with your local clock time.
