Timestamps on Activity pages not zone-adjusted May 25, 2007 10:00 AM   Subscribe

I love the new Activities page(s) in the user profiles, but the timestamps on comments and posts there aren't being adjusted for time zones. For instance, I see this comment of mine as having been at 10:16am (which is correct) on the AskMe page, but at 7:16am on my activity page.

Workaround: move to the West Coast.

Yeah, I'll add the timezone stuff to that in the next couple days.

What about that AskMe time limit? 7 days is a bitch, eh? Who's with me?

Also the whole timezone things gets screwy when someone posts a on this day fpp which is always a day late because the US is so far behind.

Don't worry about the world ending tomorrow, because it already is tomorrow here.

The 'on this day' posts are not even arguably a day late, if the event in question happened in the same place the poster is. If I post from the U.S. that 'on this day in 1988, Singapore smelled like a diaper pail because of all the Durian eaters,' then yes, it would be a day late. If I post that 'on this day in 1999, Bob once again neglected to flush the toilet at work before he left for the night,' then there's no issue. Except for whether Bob is still doing that. He did it all the time. Monday morning was not pleasant.

And it's always happy hour somewhere. What can we do about this, gentlemen?

Kirth Gerson - arguably Christmas Day is the December 25, every year.

And on that subject - steam pudding? hot turkey? fruit cake? It is like 100F outside, not pleasant.

Also I found a farenheit to proper temperature converter online and more accurately it is 85.

In my defence, I guessed in good faith, attempting to be culturally sensitive.
