Time Zones and Cookies April 10, 2004 6:28 AM   Subscribe

Nearly a year and a half ago, number 1 gave us customizable time zones for Metafilter. I love it. I have innumerable cookie issues regarding resetting it all the time. But, that's not what I'm complaining about. (I'm not really complaining, either, just making a point, I guess..) In his original post, mathowie said, "MetaTalk, I'll eventually get to." As far as I can tell, it hasn't been gotten to yet. A quick search of Metatalk threads hasn't yielded results and I can't get the time zone to change even with a cookie reset. In addition, since AskMeFi is a subsection or something of MeTa, perhaps I could remind our fearless leader that that could be done as a part of the planned, future, wonderful AskMe upgrade. Just a thought.

oh, speaking of ponies: can we also have it so that any links in AskMe and MeTa open automatically in new windows like they do in MeFi? : >

How about automatically opening windows in new tabs. Pony and the horse.

Cmd-click is too much work, especially since I don't have to do it in the blue. ; >

Why would anyone want a goddamn, mother fucking pony? That phrase infuriates me to no goddamn, mother fucking end!!!!

I'd rather have a robot that is incapable of moderating the tone or volume of its voice

I'm thinking like the one that sings folk music in season three of Futurama

how about a robot pony, TGC?

Only if it fails to modulate the tone and volume of its whinny.

Why not just move to the west coast of the US?

Actually, I find that having MetaTalk in "MeFi-Time" is useful for knowing what time it is in the less-advanced parts of the world, especially when it is Monday here and Sunday "over there" - it reminds me why things are so quiet here on Mondays.
