About the timestamp

AHA: What timezone is it? my local? appears so anyway.

It's all relative.

UTC

They're all stored in UTC, and displayed as the equivalent time in your local timezone.  For example, if I post something at 1200GMT I see the timestamp as 1200 and MarkTAW sees the timestamp as 0700...  It's some sort of trickery!

The only useful shortcut in Opera is Alt+F4...

No, Mozilla fanboy.  (I use IE at work because I don't get a choice, but I loathe it with every fibre of my being.)

It tries to pretend it's my friend, but under the thin veneer there's plainly a lot of hostility...

How do you know my local timezone?

Ryan,

Probably something like this:

<?php
setlocale (LC_TIME, $_SERVER["HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE"]);
$mytime= gmstrftime("%b %d %Y %H:%M:%S", mktime ())."<br>";
echo $mytime;
?>

(Although obviously substituing mktime() with the timestamp from the database.)

I guess sticking in the time zone it thinks it's displaying might help morons who can't figure out that the timestamp for the latest thing that was posted (including their own posts) should represent "Now."
