    Time Setting challenge


    In my CP, my time zone is set to GMT+2.

    At the bottom of the forum page it says the time is GMT+3.

    How can I get these 2 co-ordinated? (GMT+2 is correct).

    Yep, they are the same.

    But I've just looked again and something has happened as it's now back to the correct time on the forum.

    I am going to go and have a sit down in a dark room. Today has been full of weird stuff for me on 8 and 10 Forums.

    Could it be all that sun we had in Europe today plus the full moon we just had?

    Well I think you got our sun (rainy here most of the day). Maybe that's the problem .

    Smileys weren't working for me in Quick Reply earlier either, but they seem okay now.

    But I've resorted to a large glass of red wine to calm my nerves. And tomorrow is another opportunity to go through it all again. They say the past doesn't predict the future so I'm hopeful of a better outcome .

    Then I'll wish you a nice calm evening and a sunny tomorrow. The learning and experimenting with Windows is suppose to be the fun part, otherwise it doesn't make any difference what OS we use, they can all Browse the internet, Email, have some sort of Word processor and play media.
