Title: Set the time
Post by: Fun with matches on January 11, 2018, 03:24:25 PM
This board shows the time to me an hour later than it should be. How to adjust? I’ve looked at profile and account settings and can’t find anything to change the time.

Mine is 17 hours in the past. It's like having my own time machine.

I guess it’s set by default to odeon’s time. I dunno. :tard:

Purposely have mine wrong; it's like my own inside joke.

Same. Matches the clock in my truck and the broken one on my shelf that gongs the wrong hour.  :dunno:

...and on another note...that and the fact that I always leave my phone laying someplace I won't hear it and won't use call waiting....drives certain people crazy.  :zoinks:

I owe some people a little insanity, heaven knows they've given me enough of it.

In there living room there is an antique coo-coo clock. It was a housewarming gift from the in-laws, purchased in Germany on their honeymoon. It sits silently on the wall, perpetually stuck at three. It's not broken, but can't stand for it to be operational. The sound of the ticking feels like pecking on the brain, and when it coo-coos I want to smash it. However, it's a lovely clock and I don't mind looking at it. Never know what time it is anyway, so three o'clock is fine with me.

Black Forest I bet with the pine cone weights...they are beautiful.

My dad hated coo-coo clocks.

My mother had one hanging in the hallway that was forever silent for the same reason.  :lol1:

Probably also why the in-laws gave it away. :laugh:

Neat. I just noticed my preferred language is Dutch.

I believe this was a bug or default setting in an earlier SMF version. We've upgraded a number of times since but it's how you registered.

It must be a bug...everyone here is writing in english.

Was that something to do with Hyke?  :LOL:

A year-or-so back , I was tryibng to identify all the British members, and had a look at language settings for the first time ever, thinking that might help.  That was when I found out found out that half the bleeding forum are Dutch, self included.

Then Hyke helpfully started the "Report here, all Brits" (or whaever-it-was called ) thread before any of we Brits had a chance to do it for ourselves. Bloody nerve!   :LOL:

It's a Dutch conspiracy to sneakily turn the whole world Dutch,  I tell you

(and now how about turning up and bleeding well posting , Hyke? I typed the magic invocation three times over, no less! And, besides,  I miss you!)

Not sure if it's fixed or not but I know that my default was Dutch when I signed up in 2006.

Well, mine is set to Dutch, and it's not making everyone's posts unintelligible and rather silly looking.

Mine is set to English/British.

:M

I think it was at Dutch though when I registered.

I just changed it to German.

Sieg Heil!

I changed mine to English a few years ago and it messed up the board for me. For some reason all the icons showing what was read or not was showing up as dud pictures. That picture icon that means you can't see the picture. It was like that for a while until odeon fixed it.

IIRC, the problem was that your theme wasn't fully localised for every language.

It's perfect now, so I appreciate that. :)
