time differences/time zones?
« on: October 04, 2017, 06:53:14 PM »
I'm pretty sure that when I just posted I saw the time was 11 something PM.  Is this the west coast time zone, or.........?  Just curious.  It don't really matter.  Just trying to be a little chatty which isn't really in my nature.  :D

I noticed the same thing. The time went screwy the last time the forum software was updated.

I Think the time is set to GMT. 

Folks on the east coast of the USA are -5 GMT, central -6, west coast -8, and 907 -9.

If i'm right, the time of this post will be about 1:26 AM.

The actual time is 8:26 PM

I was wrong. The time does not match any continent.

I'm sure Jay or Kirk can fix it.

Huh, not seeing what the problem is.  Time seems fine?  US Central.   ................oh, wait, I did reset it LOL!  Didn't think it would reset every post to match up correctly though!

Turning on and off is about it for me too.  However, I took a typing class back in high school for that extra half a credit to get the hell out of there and it's stuck with me, so thankfully the hunt and peck days are long ago gone!

Now I am wondering about my time stamp.  I never pay that much attention to it

Well nailed it within 1 second.  I guess that is close enough.  Must have the correct time zone loaded in my profile and it is working correctly.

lol  Our teacher was a male and he kind of liked to get a little too close to the girls now and again.  Fancied himself some kind of Don Juan with the gold necklace and slicked hair.  He was a pretty cool and decent guy actually, but just the girl thing kind of rattled me a bit. 

He didn't actually teach.  He would just say what page to do because we had books we would follow and reproduce on paper with the typewriters what was in the book.  It was a pretty easy class and almost seemed like playtime.  I'm surprised our little school could afford a room full of typewriters!  I graduated with around 30 others if I remember properly.  Little podunk little town and school.

I took typing my senior year, just for an easy hour.
By the numbers I only needed 1/2 a credit to graduate, but I had a required full credit in English. The little school I went to did not have any options, so had to take a full class load to get that 1 credit in English.
When we got to typing class they ran short on books, liked 2 iirc having enough for the class, I had already thumbed through mine, so gave it back, telling the teacher that someone who plans on actually doing any of this might as well have it. I never typed one single thing, in fact, the only thing I even have any recollections of in that class was the miniskirts, the preachers daughter wore. lol
