Why is your clock an hour and seven minutes slow? :badpc: :badpc:
And why do the emoticons not working?

take deep breaths..... ;)

the date/time is now user defined, so you could change and live by US times if you prefer!!
It's all in your UserCP, under "Edit Options"

unless everyone synchronises their watches it could be hard to get it right
5 mins is better than 12 hours out right??? :puppydog:

It would seem to me as well as Rob that the clock is 12 hours out?

My settings are set to NZ daylight savings time +12 hours and yet all the current posts are going up at 03:15 which equals 3.15 am yet it is 15.15.....

seems some people get no sleep at all then these days :yuck:

Edit: are you shure you are not missing the pm part?

ah yes, maybe ILikeLinux has it - we're not using 24 hour time display...

Op Error.
(1) Check your timezone Jack, and (2) "All your smileys are belong to us". :blush:

And the 12 hour display puts in the AM and PM to avoid ambiguity. (Of course there is still the problem at 12:00 --- is it smart enough to put "noon" or "midnight"? ).

Perhaps Jack's sundial is wrong. ;-)

Yeah, but chances are that a post will never be made dead on the dot of noon, so if you clicked post on 12.00 (noon) forum time, it would show up as 12.00 pm, because it would of been after the exact middle of the day.

Well my machine is set to NZ DST, Wellington and Auckland, Greenwich +12
as are my user settings for the forum.

The way the thread times are at the moment in a 12 hour clock you can't tell whether it was posted just this minute or twelve hours ago.... :help:

By definition, 12:00 p.m. is 12 hours after ("post") noon ("meridian"). That is midnight. By definition, 12:00 a.m. is 12 hours before ("ante") noon. That is midnight (of yesterday). I don't think I've ever seen the correct 12 hour usage where there isn't a 12:00 ANYTHING. You should count up to 11:59:59.999 AM/PM then start again 0:0:0.001 PM/AM.

That's why the 24 hour clock is used. It isn't ambiguous. It can be wrong, but not ambiguous. :nerd:

Jack, sorry, but I find it really weird how you have made so many negative comments regarding this new forum. These guys and gals have done enormous amounts of work to get the forum up and running. Be thankful for what you have! We pay nothing to come here...

Time is 100% bang-on for me (I lie, about 15 seconds fast). My PC synchronises from time.windows.com.

I know I am not mad. I may be half blind but I can tell the time.
This morning, without making any changes to my settings, your clock is telling the correct time.
Is PF1 just taking it's time about settling down or is someone playing games?
I see now that emoticoms do not appear until they are posted. Or at least mine don't.
Jack
Behave or you are for the tip. :badpc:
