GMT

Just to let you know, Daylight Savings is now in effect and it seems to have muffalated the forum clock. It's two hours ahead on GMT.

Re: GMT

Probably because the forum server is based in some place that puts their clocks forward now instead of back. Zach found out where it's coming from, but I forgot. Anyway, you can easily change the clock yourself by going on your profile and selecting timezone: '-2'.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: GMT

OK, I have now changed the base time for the forum (... must remember to do this every half a year ...).

But different placess move out of (and into) Summer/Daylight/whatever time on different days, so you may have to adjust your own time settings too (under "Profile" -  it is really easy)

Re: GMT

Yarr, that be true.

I changed my clock to -2 a while ago, which was really easy, and just now I've put it back to GMT, which was also really easy.

Fun fact: We have a base time (GMT) during the winter and put our clocks forward (BST) during the summer, but Americans have a base time during the summer and put their clocks back (Daylight Savings) during the winter.
