Forum timezone?

by FrankQC / June 12, 2009 8:46 AM PDT

I'm eastern time and when I post a reply/create a new thread, the times are -WAY- off. Is there any way to fix this?

Pacific and hard coded...

All times are Pacific and are not customizable based on the user's location at this time, so you'll need to mentally add/subtract 3 hours, respectively.

I had the same question. The forum software seems a little outdated with not being able to change the time zone does it not?

The forums works and it enables communications. I'm grateful for that.

Having timezone-timestamps would indeed be useful, but it's not the end of the world. If the forums had something wrong with them that prevented users/mods to communicate, then yea that would be a problem haha Silly

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
