It is with great sadness I'd like to announce Dr. Hanneman passed away on December 12, 2020. His legacy will live on forever!

If you do, and notice that the times listed on this forum are all crazy for you, go to PROFILE.
At the bottom of the page is where you can set what time zone you live in.
California Time (a.k.a. PST) is GMT-1.
Let me know if you get confused....I'll ask Doos or Snizzy to figure it out for you. :lol:

Keep in mind that you might be on summertime.

I am officially in the GMT+1 timezone, so I need to set it to GMT+2 due to summertime.

You see what I mean? Actually, I should have asked Doos from the beginning! PST (a.k.a.) California Time is GMT-7

LOL! I see what you mean!

I am on EDT which is GMT - 4 hours.

It's easy enough to go in and play with it until your correct time zone is located :)

Also remember that when chats and special events occur, there usually is a link to a page where you can find what your time will be.

Right Gemma! Those are posted in the chat threads. This GMT issue is regarding individual's computers - everyone has to change it in their user profile - only if it matters to them of course! :)

I know. Which goes to say that it doesn't really matter what the forum time says it is as long as you make on time according to your wall clock. Silly Snizzy! :P

This is just for us anal retentive people who like to look at the forum and see the correct posting times. That's why Anatase questioned if anyone really cared!

That's odd! It shouldn't be! Oh well, maybe all of our computers are playing games with us today :)

Maybe it's semantics of time zones - the ST's and the DT's?

Anyway - I live in Maine on the East Coast and changing to GMT - 4 hours reset my time on my computer.

Anatase lives in California - 3 hours behind me so she changed hers to GMT - 1 hours which I believe reset the time on her computer.

I noticed my first posting showed an hour ahead of central time, maybe because of daylight savings time(?), which will change on the first Sunday of November, according to the new law. So it was -4, and I increased it to -5 to get the correct time. When daylight savings time ends, will I have to move it back to -4? I get confused easily when it comes to this stuff, which I explain away as blonde moments. :oops: :idea:

Yes, the time is entirely up to you. You can set it for Paris, France time if you want, and then you will know what time to call Frank in the middle of the night to tick him off! :P
