Why is the PCA Forum clock approx 3 minutes ahead of my clock? Am I in a Timewarp? My PC Clock is synchronised withe Internet Time. Can anybody explain?
Thanx

Methinks if there was an old chestnut forum the topic would be fairly near the top :-)

This is simple to solve......... take 12 hours off your time and then add 3 hours. Then multiply three minutes by 20 and also add this result to the previous one. Multiply 60 minutes by 6 and add the result to the previous figure. Then divide 120 minutes by 2 and add 3. When that total (minutes) is applied to the latest figure you will find that, voila!, your clock now reads the same as the forum one.

(-12x60)+(3x20)+(60x6)+(120:3)+3

...errrm, last bit of the formula should be (120:2)+3...it is rather late.

Yep, the server time-stamps each post, and sometimes the clock is fast, sometimes it's slow - such is life, and I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
