Posted:hey malcom, i hhave a small request for you, that is to put some kind of clock on the site so we people in other countries can see when the posts were becouse it can be a little disorestating reading a recent post that, according to my time, is in the future or something similar, it is quite odd, so is there any chance of getting a java clock, or a way to convert timezones somewhere???thankyou

Posted:Ajtag,Sorry I don't know how to do this. Does anyone else know how to do this or think this will make a big enough difference to the board?I personally never look at the time, only the date. Anyone else confused?Malcolm

Posted:Hey Malcolm,I think a javascript solution would be in order, and wouldnt be too difficult - however I'm not sure it would make a huge difference...The most recent post is at the bottom of the top thread.why do you want to know anything else?Josh

Posted:Think of the time that you see on the page as Home of poi standard time, then compare other threads to that. I usually post something so that my post is the most recent and then just watch for changes in the order of threads or the number of posts to see if anyone else is posting...Josh

Posted:hi all... well although it's not going to make a huge difference i must admit there were times i would have found local time useful - this is usually when i check the BB from another computer so that every thread appears 'red' ie containing new messages; so by looking at the time and remembering when i last checked it would be just a bit more convenient to find out which threads contain new posts... however the difference for me won't be huge, maybe it's about time to learn converting time zones after all
