It would be great if the current MT (mountain standart time) were displayed. I have a hard time figuring out if there are new posts since the last time I checked. (Doing anytype of math hurts my brain.) Thanks.
Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.
Ummm, it looks like Christopher is in Boston. So he's not in MST either. His point I believe is that on loading a page, he sees a bunch of times in MST for each of the topics - but he would like to know what is the current time (at page loading) in MST so that he has something to compare the values against. This sounds like a nice idea - not particularly urgent, but a nice feature to have. However it runs up against the usual problem - we'reusing third-party software here, and it's probably more trouble than it's worth to try to customize it. But perhaps there's a simple way to do this within the UBB framework - I don't know offhand.
How about a background process on the server which regenerates a copy of either the "Moose" image or the "Post new Topic" image with a timestamp rendered on to it? Do it once a minute and anyone who's interested in the time can find out by just refreshing the page images. Alternatively the footer seems easily customizable, so why not use a similar background process to regenerate the footer text with a timestamp each minute?
You can find a lot of free web page monitors from www.download.com They can be configured to watch any number of web pages( works with CGI's too ) for changes. You will get a notification once it detects a newer page. This way you don't have to write one!

Oh, I get it (finally). Yeah, I just keep adding 2 hours to all the times.
