Time Changes

Postby Jason » Sun Oct 25, 2009 7:01 pm

As you will all be aware the clocks went back one hour at about 2am the morning.

This means that you may see the time in the message boards as an hour to far forward.

If this is the case you need to go into your profile and reset the time offset to GMT.

Ah! The joys of living in Arizona where they leave the clocks alone. :wink:

I have tried to change the clock, but it doesn't recognize my p(r)oxy server (or something like that).
Is it because I'm using my phone to post instead of my computer? :(

Saw the title of this thread and thought to myself "I bloody hope so too, otherwise either the world has come to an end or I'm going to have to wind the clocks again"

Well in Scotland it starts to get really dark mid afternoon and in the morning it give the farmers an extra hours more daylight, in the Summer I have seen the Sun just sinking close to Midnight.

It might be. I don't know. I could change your profile for you to the correct time if you like.

Yes please, Jason.
I've never liked being late for anything but now I'm an hour ahead and I'm struggling to get my brain around it!

Aha, ok OUR time change, ala ex-pres bush, is Midnight Nov. 1st... I thought i was in another blinkin' universe, I thought. Wot's the bluidy universe done now? Gone and messed the the blasted time and space continum? Where's the blasted monks and procrastinators when you need them? Why weren't the auditors notified? And why did they not make ex-pres bush go poof? If Anyone deserved it, twas HIM. Has anyone noticed that He is not being interviewed??? Not on ET answering those fun questions like "How does it feel to have mucked things up so badly and left it for your great-great-grandchildren to begin to make sense of... sorry went off on a bit of a digression there... Hey, is that a dog? :twisted:
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.
