1 TIME - Am I Ahead Or Behind ? on 5/6/2010, 6:35 pm

Troy:

Can't we get the reference time for this system corrected ?

When I look at this screen at the top I find that my last visit was "Friday May 07, 2010 at 2:25 AM- TOMORROW". Which means I am actually somewhere on the other side of the International Date Line, I did cross that when I was in the Navy but I came back.

I did a post earlier today at 1222 hrs, the system thinks I posted it yesteday 1122 hrs. The base time line the system is using is MST which is fine but it is 24 hrs out of sync, BEHIND.

I am getting very old and I have a hard time knowing if I am coming or going !

Does anyone know why I think in the 24 hour clock, who ever came up with this AM-PM bulls__t anyway.

Don't ask me about the numeric day, month year expression, smallest unit "day" next larger unit, "month" and finally "year". Yet in our infinite wisdom we experss it as "05/06/2010". Much of the world express "6th May 2010" as "06/05/2010".

L-O-G-I-C, a word with no meaning in our society obviously.

My soapbox is now at rest, should anyone need it.

How did I set my time zone to tomorrow ? I didn't set any time zone. Also if you look at the other postings from the other guys they will reflect the same situation.

Mine was the same way, go into profile, preferences, scroll down to time zone, then change it to GMT-5 hours.
That is what I did to yours Tom.
I think the default is where it was; GMT+whatever the time difference was if you didn't change it upon registration.

Thanks Troy, I didn't recall having selected a time zone in my profile left to default value, I assumed everything would reference against System Time (Administrator).
