Forum time quirk?

Postby cpedw » Tue Oct 08, 2019 10:18 pm

When I'm logged in, the forum time is GMT which is awkward but I can cope. But if not logged in, the forum time is BST. I don't know what happens to it in winter.

There's always something to keep me occupied when they take the boat away for winter ...

After eventually remembering my password, I logged in.
Still shows UTC as it says, whether logged in or not.

On passwords... I now have 127 passwords to remember. Banks, websites, cards, phone, car, burglar alarm, work, leisure.
I'm so glad my boat works when raising the sails, without having to put a password into the halyard, mainsheet, tiller... Wish the rest of life was so simple.

If you click on your user name up on the right then User Control Panel then Board Preferences you can set your time zone.

But your post is time-stamped 11.06?

There's a world of adjustments that I never knew about there!
