Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

Postby BioTube » 2009-03-08 15:24

Are there any plans to support this?

Unless you meant within the forum. Pretty much all forums I've seen have had this problem.

What's your timezone setting? As folks have said, I get this automatically simply by saying that I want America/New_York as my timezone.

And there's the issue that the US and Europe don't switch to DST at the same time ...

I was talking about within the forum software, hence the placement in "Forum stuff & feedback".

AFAIK we do handle DST automatically but as pointed out above our server is in Europe. So I would assume that it doesn't switch until 29th of March.

Edit: And as the caffeine started working I see that the question is about the software. To answer that: I don't know... I kinda thought it did as long as you selected the correct timezone in your profile. Then again, I didn't even know you guys were out of sync with the rest of the world...

The way it works here in the good old US of A , a government BY the people and FOR the people is this:
The clock manufacturers wanted more money , so they greased the palms of a few politicians who passed a law changing when DST changed , thereby BORKing most of our clocks , and after we throw them away in aggravation , We the People went out and bought new ones ! :)
And , rest assured , that just as soon as the sale of clocks falls off again , they'll probably change it Back ! :lol:
GOD DAMN , I'm proud to be a broke American ! :shock:

If you bought a new clock because you dont know how to change it you deserve to be broke.

I have no idea why it starts earlier now, but I do remember that an argument for extending it on the other end involved Halloween.
