Possible Duplicate:
200 Rep Limit over what period exactly?

At what time of the day does the 200 rep cap limit reset. For example as of 4:24pm today I have earned 97 reps for the day. So "today" I earned 97 reps. What time of the day does "tomorrow" begin whereby I will have earned 0 reps thus resetting the 200 rep daily limit.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Certainly a dup, but 00:00Z - i.e. UTC midnight. It is currently 21:32:43 in UTC time, so add 2½ hours to your local time. – Marc Gravell Jan 14 '10 at 21:32
Thanks John - I had to disappear, so couldn't look it up. – Marc Gravell Jan 14 '10 at 23:11

4:00 PM Pacific Standard Time
5:00 PM Mountain Standard Time
6:00 PM Central Standard Time
7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

And I do not believe it shifts for daylight time savings ... but I cannot confirm that.

For all other times, see here.

Which CST do you mean? I know of three different time zones, all called CST :) – Jon Skeet Jan 14 '10 at 21:57
Fixed :) Now I'm waiting for the next flaw in my post to be spotted! – Tyler Carter Jan 14 '10 at 22:13
Why America, of course! Nothing else really exits, you know. You are merely a fig newton of our collective imagination. – Adam Davis Jan 14 '10 at 22:14
@Chacha102: Central Standard Time US, right? Because one of the other CSTs is Central Standard Time in Australia :) – Jon Skeet Jan 14 '10 at 22:30
@Jon Just go answer a C# question or something.... – Tyler Carter Jan 14 '10 at 22:50
EST also applies to every country that has an Eastern border... – Mark Henderson Jan 14 '10 at 23:44

About when I go to bed.

I've been meaning to ask Jeff to make that more accurate...

(But yes, midnight UTC in reality.)

You need a little red button on the side of your bed. When you press it, the rep cap resets :) – Tyler Carter Jan 14 '10 at 22:11
@Chacha: given that I usually sleep with my phone near by (at least when I'm on call) I should write an android app that detects sleep-style breathing. It could also alert me if a C# question is posted just before I drift off... – Jon Skeet Jan 14 '10 at 22:29
