Hi, I've noticed that posts on TMP all seem to be timed according to PST. Is that a non-customizable site-wide default?

Servers are in CA. Somewhere in the set up they show server time

Server was originally on GMT, and not even the hosting service could explain why.

Then we switched to PST, either because I was in California at the time, or because the server was.

Now, I'm on the East Coast, and the server is in the Midwest somewhere. grin

Because computers like to gaslight us.

The Internet is convinced at some deep level that only California is real. Not only do I get the wrong time zone--and the default is always California time--the weather on my home page keeps reverting to Sunnydale California. (Is there such a place in real life?)Really not very helpful in northern Indiana.

When the whole place slides into the Pacific, I for one will not miss it.

Robert, what is your issue with California? Is this a political perspective expressly forbidden in TMP's rules, or do you just dislike Sonoma wines, California olives, or the Magic Kingdom?

Sunnyvale is a good sized city in California and part of Silicon Valley. Google it.

"When the whole place slides into the Pacific, I for one will not miss it."

But will we ever really know what the correct time was when this happened?!?

Just saw on the news CA is thinking about becoming 3 seperate states ?!?!? Hope that all keep the same time zone(s) ! evil grin

And we don't need to add 3 more stars to the USA's flag either ! Regardless of CA or CA x3 !!! laugh

Because he lways hopes to go to Cali beaches one day.

Actually we would add two more stars to the flag.

I hope this does not happen.
