I am reminded that Daylight Savings Time begins this weekend in most of Europe, ENDS in Australia and North America waits until next weekend.

Since our server runs on Central time, we won't turn our clock ahead an hour until the third of April. If you're in Some Other Country and find that the time in the box on the upper right corner of the page is ahead an hour - or even back an hour, you can either

(a) wait around for a week to see if it corrects, or
(b) Hit the profile page and adjust your "Timezone offset:" by +1 or -1 as need be - or, if you've NEVER set your clock, you can look at our time and FIX it to match yours!

Those of you who are wondering why you're set to PACIFIC time probably registered a year ago when the server thought it was in THAT time zone. Back when I reset the clock, I added -2 (okay, I subtracted 2) from everyone's timezone value whether I knew it was right or not, just so nobody would notice the change.

This has been another episode of "More than you cared to know about The W" - call your mom!

When it seems like the whole world is full of idiots,
maybe your standards are a bit high.
