Hey, what happened?!

What happened to our times on our posts? They are correct, now. I suppose our tech people must have found out the problem.......oh, never mind, duh, it's daylight savings time. At least we'll have the right times until the equinox returns.

Ya, for whatever reason the forums clock has been stuck on daylight savings time for a full year. I had to switch back from central time to get my forums clock to tell the correct time

Maybe they can utilize the extra time to fix it before fall and the time changes again

I don't know about anyone else, I would have a hard time caring less than I do now about what time a post was added. I'd be more concerned about having a question answered or helping someone with a question. Don't mean to be TYPE A personality if this was meant as humor.

It was meant for humor, but it is irritating to be on the forum trying to answer new posts, when the time says "yesterday 1115 pm" when it really was just a few minutes ago. At least now we'll all be on the same side of the international date line. We just find it amusing that the designers and keepers of the site can't seem to get something as simple as a clock fixed, when there are more difficult issues that they handle with a breeze.

If you guys all lived out here where there was no DST, there wouldn't be this problem. But then we'd lose the deep knowlege base from around the country, wouldn't we?

And you'd probably drive my taxes up with your multi-million dollar homes.

Aha!!! That's it. The keepers of the site live in Arizona or in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and just don't know about time change. Not it all comes together. Thanks, GG.

Just when ya get used to one time, they go and switch it back on ya. You are either an hour late or an hour early..lol

If the daylight savings folks would just split the difference, it would be so much easier.

DST is one of the secret weapons used to confuse the enemy.
We attack at 0700! Synchronize your watches!
What time Zone? Do they observe DST?

Travis, you mean instead of setting our clocks ahead (or back) an hour, we only do it in 30 minute increments? Boy that would confuse the heck out of our site keepers.
And you would only be 30 minutes late to work!

Here's the plan.

For the next year we advance the clock 5 minutes a month.

For the year after that we turn back the clock 5 minutes a month.

We still end up a hour ahead and then a hour back per year.

Unless you are like my wife. She can't stand to be early for anything. I like to socialize for a few minutes before an event. She will be 30 minutes late for her own funeral!
