How can you adjust timezones? Answered

OK, everytime I see a comment, the time is very diffrent from mine.

I just posted a comment. My time ( checked ALL of my watches) was 7:03, yet on instructables, it said 3:03

I was wondering if I could do anything so that my times match? Perhaps on Instructables or Firefox???

The time on the screen is the time at The Tower, in some out-of-the-way place called Cali-something-or-other

... some of the nicest people ...

Have you noticed how people say "no offense, but..." and then follow it with something really offensive?

No offense, but I think you are the most annoying person I have ever had the displeasure of meeting, and I can't believe that you and all your other jolly-good friends are allowed to live on the same planet and go to the same site as I do.

Like that?
No offense ;-P

Its about as redundant as saying "I'm not going to say you I told you so, but..."

I'm actually at a hotel in London tonight for a trade show in the morning and i think England is being reverse colonised! I've heard more american accents this evening than most nights tv watching gives me.

I put a suggestion in for localised timestamps a while ago, it's with the dev team apparently.





Aren't timestamps fun?

I wonder if a Grease Monkey script would be usable here ?

Since the time is California and is GMT -8 it shouldn't be hard

I'm not familiar with Grease Monkey. I know what it is, but I guess its never interested me.

GMT is Greenwich Mean Time. What most countries base their time zones on. It makes it easy to locate what zone someone is in ( I am GMT -5, so I am on the east coast of the USA, but that extends up into Canada also)

Um, he said Greasemonkey, not Greenwich Mean Time.

Keith-Kid, Greasemonkey is an add-on for Firefox that allows you to run Javascript commands to modify the webpage. It's been used before to hide K'Nex-related iBles and forum topics, and to show all steps, before it became an option on Instructables itself.

I know, I brought up the Greasemonkey thing, but since he was not familiar with it, I assumed he did not have it. There is a Greasemonkey add on for FireFox, one for Mozilla Flock, and one for MSIE also.

. If you're running Windows, you can go to the Date & Time control panel and adjust your time zone to match Ible's server (PST/PDT). But then you'll have to add four hours to get your local time. . Probably be easiest just to remember Ibles is four hours behind you. ;)
