Just a reminder to fix your DST settings for the forum.

The settings for this forum software do not have a way to change the DST settings for the forum automatically... so it's up to the individual users. To fix this:

-Go to the User Control Panel: ucp.php
-Then go to "Board Preferences".
-Then change the "Summer Time/DST is in effect" option to Yes.

If you don't change this setting, your forum time setting will be off by an hour.

What's Daylight Savings Time? :scratch:
This is an aggressive post. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate a post of this quality and depth.

This happened last Saturday while waiting for the door in the airplane to open.
Passenger who is right by me: Do you know if they also start the DST tomorrow in here (Mexico)
Me: I don't know, but I'm sure they don't
Her daughter (joking): You should know
Me: Ermmmm I live in 1 of 2 states that don't have DST
Both of them: That's really cool.

Oh yeah, and DST in Venezuela means move the clock forward only 30 minutes.

Another reminder to set your forum clocks! This time turn the option to "no".

I've got a project the time on the ceiling clock on my nightstand, and it will lot just let it go: You can't set it to forget about DST. So I have to remember it's an hour off all summer. :hissyfit: I already got up an hour early this year. Happens once a year, after that I remember. :evil:
