Cron Query***URGENT*****


Hi all , i have on doubt here.

this is the cron job for server in HK

Start1 = 30 21 * * 1-5
Stop1 = 00 00 * * 1-5
Start2 = 00 00 * * 2-6
Stop2 = 00 04 * * 2-6

and i need to convert the timing to US which is 12 hrs behind it

as per my understanding

Start1 is from Monday to Friday at 9:30PM HKT…which Monday to Friday 9:30am in US
Stop1 is 00:00AM Monday to Friday HKT….. Sunday to Thursday 12 noon in US
Start2 is 00:00AM Tuesday to Saturday HKT…which is Monday to Friday 12 noon US
Stop2 is 04:00 AM Tuesday to Saturday HKT…which is Monday to Friday 4:00PM US

i am more worried about stop1 , will it stop on monday 00:00 after sunday 11:59 or or after mon 11:59

also correct me if other assumption are wrong..
thanks in advance

And you not flagging your posts as **URGENT** and expecting people who VOLUNTEER their time to hurry up and answer you would be appreciated as well.

Andrewthomas beat me to the answer.
