Way , since when the forum pages say this:
All times are in your computer's local time.
?

Thanks cowboys,
Bu.

Reminds me a bit of a TV series with Kiefer Sutherland: "All events are in real time."

oops,
sorry!

I knew sooner or later I'll fall into that trap. At least there is no word as cowpeople or cowhuman (this to my excuse).

By the way, what about the bullboys? Or the maverick sheilas from Queensland and Norhern territories? Well, at least the last can stop calculating the time zone,


See you, and thanks to Jeanne
Bu.

It was nice logging on to the Ranch today and seeing 7:49pm as a post time when it isn't yet 7:49 at the Ranch. Good way to find out your code is live!

Dave: Thanks for noticing I'm a cowgirl

EBM would be the Trail Boss.

Maybe BO - Bovine Operative?

Um, I don't think "bovine" really has the connotation you want here. I certainly wouldn't apply that word to Jeanne.

Yes, Jim, maybe too ambiguos.

Perhaps, as Chris said, maybe EBM for the trail boss (won't recognize the difference anyway).

For the working class maybe:

BETR

for Bovine Entity Transit Representative


Yours,
Bu.

well, it does say that all times are in your computer's local time.....

but still, the time that I'm getting here is 30 minutes behind the actual time (the time on my computer)...!!!

any reason why that might be happening?

It's the *server's* time that is displayed, translated in your computer's local time *zone*.

I've modified the text to be a little more clear, I hope. "All times are in your local time zone & format." There's a space limitation, I had to drop "computer's" from the phrase to make it work.

Pushkar, I would guess that your computer is not configured correctly. Perhaps the time zone is set incorrectly, and the clock is also set incorrectly in such a way that it compensates for the time zone and your time display appears correct when displaying the current time - but not other times from other computers. I recommend you check out what the Saloon looks like on other computers in your area. Please let us know if the problem seems to occur on other computers, rather than just yours. On most systems you can access the time zone settings by simply double-clicking on the clock display. I hope that helps.
