...10 days out of sync.

I'm posting this on 27th May

The last time this happened the hoi polloi were up in arms as to the loss of 13 days of their lives, at our age on this forum we can't afford to lose 10 days!

...especially with such fine weather ;-)

I think that you are reading the date incorrectly.

The date is showing as 27 May 17.

It gives the day of the month, the month and then the year.

Think Quickbeams reading it as May 17th :)

It is a tad confusing as i have had the same problem before. Age thing maybe.

10:37 27 May 17

or

10:37 17 May 27

I think PCA have got it right of course but could be a little confusing.

The lost 10 days i read the book,it was when the Julian calendar was changed to the Gregorian calendar,and not as boring as it sounds.

DOH!

The 27 (27th day) figure gets lost in the time section. It would be clearer if it read May 27th 2017

True Quickbeam. I would agree with that but they must have done it there way for a reason.

Speak nicely to them and they may change it to the way you think it should be.

Yes, and I do not want to see dates expressed in the format adopted by our ex-colony.
