Off topic, about the "time" showing of posts...
The time showing of when posts have been made is waaaaaay off for me. Any hints as to why, or is there some setting somewhere here that I need to change in my profile?

Yep ... you can try changing the "Timezone" option in the your profile. It's just above the avator options. Mine is at GMT -4 hours. I think yours should be at GMT - 5

Good Luck ...

All the options given are for GMT+ x number of hours. What does that mean, exactly? I am on central time, and my setting is currently at "GMT+1 hour".

Nik, you posted about the same time as I did, hence my question after. I'll go change it to that, but I am still confused as to how you come up with that number (the minus 5)?

I'm sorry, I don't know what GMT means.

But I just changed mine to - 4 hours and that corrected the display times. You are in Texas right? You are one hour behind me, so I'm thinking you should set your option to - 5 ...

Try it and see ... :D

GMT = Greenwich Mean Time (is that what you were wondering?)

can you scroll up on the side to the negative times? The negative times are listed to the top and the postitive ones are on the bottom of the scroll bar.

I have never heard of that before! I had just assumed it meant "Greater Mountain Time", so when I first registered, I chose the GMT+1 hour, since I'm one hour ahead of mountainer's.

It is the standard time so everyother time zone is + or - it. There is your fact for the day


EDIT - oh and it doesn't have a daylight savings so when that comes around again you have to adjust,
