Timezone bug. January 15, 2005 5:51 PM   Subscribe

Timezone confusion; though my prefs are set for Eastern time, timestamps are coming up PST. ?

If it's happening in Metatalk only, and not in the blue, it's an old and known bug. Any word on if or when a repair is in the works, matt?

I'm in EST as well, and I've _always_ had MeTa and AskMe comments come up tagged in PST. I've just gotten used to adding three hours, in the back of my head, when I'm gauging when posts there have been made.

(In the blue, curiously, this doesn't seem to be an issue. Posts are time-stamped just fine, there.)

Preference customizations only apply to Metafilter, never been implemented in Metatalk or Ask Metafilter. No Bug, this'd be a pony request.

What a pretty pony.

It is the same pony that results in you not seeing a running comment count under the lead post when you are inside - The Gray and The Green use different code if I understand it correctly.

It makes you do math, which helps your brain.
