The time hard coded into the forum's php is set to GMT. There is a setting somewhere in the control panel for your time zone. If you choose your time zone then all the times will read to you perfectly.. unless you live where there is daylight savings time. Then it will **** with things. So that my times would read correctly I set my timezone incorrectly so that my times will read correctly.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 01:10 PM. <-- Thats what mine says at the bottom, but if I set my timezone correctly the time would be GTM -6...

I think that's the problem, a few more weeks & we'll be back on GMT in the UK

they shouldnt set the time to just GMT because of the light saving changes back here in england

No, at the moment in the UK we're not on GMT, we're on British Summer time.

In a few weeks the clocks will go back an hour and we'll be back on GMT.

Then we'll be on the same time as the forum clock

Ah, yes..I always noticed it was off by an hour, even if I entered in my time zone correctly, and I figured it may be because of the daylight savings, but now I know for sure. I imagine it will fix up for me here after Halloween.

Nice of you to point it out, Moony..I was wondering that myself, and now I know. Thanks, Billy.

Mine's on the left, actually, Raver.. but that's because I have my toolbar set at the left side of my screen.

Wow, I thought we were the only people who messed around with our times & have that embarrassing day when if you forget you turn up an hour late/early for something

My modification takes less than one second. Point, click, drag. I can make more than one move in one second, come to think of it.

If you don't have that much time in your hands..you should consider drinking less, heh, heh.

I dont have too much time on my hands - I just know how to fill the time I DO have with the things I like to do. And I know its odd to alot of people, but I enjoy programming things.

haha... well to be honest, right now i have a lot of time. recently i just injured my shoulder at the gym and i have taken a few days off from work. weirdly enough, i haven't really been drinking all that much because the first set of midterms has just started at school. today is friday and my last paper is due today. all my tests and papers are done for a bit so i'm gonna party it up. come to think of it, my friend is leaving to train for iraq in a few days so of course i'm gonna party tonight. =)~

According to theory of knowledge (Studies which defies all laws of knowledge) everything is a figment of our imagnaton. For example colour. Look at the forum background. It's blue. You ask someone what colour is the background of the forum? They come up with the same answer. TOK says both people would said the same answer but blue may be different colour to what the other person is seeing.
