I just noticed that the times shown are no longer EST. Something to do with the board changes? ???
Good question. I tried to adjust using the "Time Offset" in my "Profile", but it does not appear to be working. Probably some minor glitch that Ray will get around to when he notices.
It's no big deal, just curious. I was used to EST since that's where I live.
It bugs me. I hate doing math after work. :-/
I'm a Math teacher! :-[
I just tried putting in my time offset in my profile and
it works fine for me. For central time, enter -6,
for eastern time, -5, etc. Don't put in "EST" or anything -
the web generally is, or should be, designed to be world
wide ( hmm, the "world wide web ), so rather than
US abbreivations like EST we like to use "UTC offset" -
the difference between your local time and Universal
The old server happened to be located on the East coast of the US at the moment, so it used EST
by default. The new server happens to be on the
West coast right now, but trades in correct UTC time.
Not that anyone cares, but I happen to be a bit of a
time freak. My server keeps accurate time, currently
accurate to within about 16 millionths of a second,
and is used by other servers around the world to
set their clocks to. I wonder how far back that goes -
I remember at about 6 years old I had two clocks
right next to each other, one less than 1 second
ahead and the other less than 1 second behind, so
I could tell the time within about 1/4 second precision
by looking at both of them.
That worked. Thanks Ray
Did you have a tube radio set for 16mHZ. "At the tone..." circa 1970's
Think I'll get mine out of attic
"My server keeps accurate time, currently
accurate to within about 16 millionths of a second"
Is that all, jeeezzzzz lol Is that when the big hand goes ...ughhh, maybe the little hand goes around something...uuuggghhhhh ??? ??? My head hurts now, bye bye, sleepy time!! :
Test post. I'm trying to set the time and checking to see what shows up on this post.
I don't get it. I'm in Central Time and +2 makes the board time correct for me. :-/
I know, I'm EST and +3 did it for me not -5. Oh well, at least it's right now.
Was that the big hand pointing up... er down... uugghh my head hurts again ??? ??? Let's see -5 add +6 then subtact -3 to the 5th power divided by 7 squared= ????? What was the question?? Yeah I figured it out too but I see ya'll beat me to it :
Lets see if mine is working . I went with +3 for eastern. Yep, it works!
That was wrong - doing modify to try again.
Now it's right - +3 for EST!
My Profile shows my local time correctly, but my posts on the forum show otherwise. For some reason, the posts are not sync'd with the profile time.
That wierd, but then you're on Vegas time. What's that... Party time?
FWIW, I'd set my time to coincide with what the posts say and ignor the profile time.
Yeah, that is what I was thinking - my "-3" is exactly the difference.
Now it shows both correctly. Go figure... ;D
