Either instructables made a mistake, or your time zone is off.

I just think it's weird that the two best jobs in the world are both located in SF. That's where they shoot Mythbusters, too. Must be something in the water.

.  IIRC, there is a topic somewhere on here that describes how some of Robot's minions had the chance to see the MythBusters when they taped an episode at the abandoned airbase where Ibles HQ was located at the time. Or maybe I was dreaming.

.  Last time I checked (about a year or so ago), the server(s) were in the Houston, TX area. But, yes, the displayed time is Robot (Pacific) time.

The time stamp on the site is Eastern time or something so that the posts all relate to the same time.  If you post in china it is relevant if I post in Arizona.  I don't post from Arizona but I'm sure you get the idea.
