Time zones? When did that happen? Geez, take a nap for 200 years and when you wake up all sorts of things have changed!

Well a solution could be in your profile section to be able to specify the time zone you would like to see on java ranch timestamps, or at a minimum java ranch could specify what timezone they are working on next to the date.

You mean something like "All times are MDT (US) = GMT - 0600" at the bottom of every screen?

Unfortunately my desktop, my wrist watch and all watches around me tell me time in local time zone

So there are two options, either I do mathematics to find out time of post or simply I see current time on page and be sure what time of post would at my post.

If you are using windows, you should be able to double click on the time in the systray and change the time zone to Mountain Time (Colorado) and see what time it is here.

And you can also go outside and look at the the sun and figure out the time, or knock on your neighbors door and ask them to tell you the time when a particular java ranch posting was done in local time, but I think the point of this thread is too make this whole process easier. It's not like this problem hasn't been solved in other forums.

It would certainly be nice if I saw the time of all javaranch postings in my local time, whether this is too much work for the benefit is another question.

In general since I have been using javaranch I haven't seen much in the way of improvements. The thing I would like to see the most is automatic email notification when anyone updates a forum entry I have posted to.
