DiscussionatorI was playing with DNr and accidentally stuck this topic in the past.

Now it's getting older as we speak, please fix it Lee.

LOL, it spread to the comments too... Oh shit, all of DNr is now aging as we speak! Crap! I've checked the Intertubes it's starting to age too

Soon it will cover all form of communications, and eventually the real world in, let me see... Fuck, it already happened! I'm very sorry, I don't mean, er, didn't mean to do that, honest!

Sometimes you'll find your clock is out of sync with the server, so they'll be out by a few seconds - this is normal and expected if a little odd. All times are stored on the database as GMT/UTC and displayed to each user based on their browser's time - i.e. that set on your computer. When you view your own profile it'll update the server with any time zone change, although yours is showing GMT-5 which is correct for Mexico.

Thank you, Lee of the past.

Note to BorgClown of the future: Not even the "comedy" and "magic" tags prevent Lee from the past from bragging about how cool his date routines are. Borgclown of the past got two stars here, so clearly he feigned innocence.

I mean, Lee of the past feigned innocence, not Borgclown of the past. Although I'm Borgclown of the past too, so I'm obviously referring to Borgclown of the past of the past, not me.

I didn't say that my routines are cool, although thanks for noticing. It's always a challenge when you have 2 clocks, one on the server and one on the client - which do you use, and which do you assume is most likely to be correct?! On a related note, have you noticed that if you put 2 digital thermometers next to each other they never agree?

Huh, odd parrallels for my fday today - spent it in a workshop with miscalibrated tools! One height gauge was .5mm out all day... Caused some angst amongst the un-improvisational in the group...

@Lee J Haywood: You have several digital thermometers? You must be rich!

@Thelevellers: What were you doing in the workshop? 0.5 mm can be a lot or nil, depending on the machine.

@BorgClown: I have digital thermometers in each room, and my bedroom has 3 at present (all showing different figures).

@BorgClown: .5mm is a horrible degree to be off.... especially in a shop.

I was making something (no real purpose, just something that shows I have certain skills, like how to file and use a hacksaw - yawn!) that had a tolerance of .25mm (pretty huge for what I will be working to on site!), so .5 was HUGE considering! Today I found the far more reliable vernier height gauge (instad of the very dodgy windy-scale-thing ones) and sped along with my work, and am now 2 pieces ahead of all the other apprentices! :D I think I would get paranoid/anal about digital thermometers saying different temperatures -I'd try doing stuff to make them agree! :P

At least with gauges you have some chance of working out when they're right/wrong. My digital thermometers display the nearest 1/10th of a degree C but disagree by up to a couple of degrees at times - even the ones by the same manufacturer.

Maybe you actually do have differing temperatures in your rooms. Do you think your HVAC unit is good enough to keep the EXACT temperature in each room? I don't think so.

Certainly the one on the wall usually reads a lower temperature than the one in the middle of the room. But when you put 2 next to each other with the sensors millimetres apart, you'd expect them to give close readings - not almost a degree different. Otherwise there's no point them measuring to the nearest 1/10th of a degree.
