    Default Board Time is off

    I have noticed that the board time is off. It is approximately 7 minutes off the Official United States Time every time I refresh the page. Could we please get this fixed.

    Interesting, according to that my own computer's time is off by a couple seconds as well. Ummm, I think your gonna get flamed for being a little nitpicky. But if the fix is easy to do, I'd encourage a mod to go ahead and do it.

    I'm curious though, what powers the time for this message board? Is it YaBB, or is it giantitp's own independant program? Just wondering.

    I think that occurrence even started its own Friendly Banter thread.

    It did, and if you look at the last 10 posts of some people (including me) you'll see that their most recent was apparently in 2017. Harumph ;).

    Ummm, you can change the timezone Durf, but that's not what we're referring to.

    I guess if you want you can change the offset to 0.116666666666 (.1166 since only 5 characters are allowed). It'll get you close, but not perfect.

    I dunno', having the time be off by a few minutes, whether in my time zone or not, kinda' makes the site seem like it runs on its own time and all that. I think it gives it that Devil May Care attitude.

    Actually, I just thought of that last statement (true as it may be), because before I saw the thread, I never really checked the time against my clolcks.

    I've never really checked the time against my clocks either. But then again, since every clock in my house has a different time on it anyway I could really confuse myself. 8) I'd just leave it alone unless you check your time everyday against the atomic clock and reset your clock to it. Power surges and low batteries are a continual nuisence in time keeping too.
