I've been seeing some typos in the boxes on the Home page.

"We got backstage to see Maharishi, and I said to him, 'Got any mantras? - George Harrison

It's missing some quotation marks. There are others like that. I don't know where to post typos found on the Home page; sorry if this is the wrong place.

EDIT: Just realised: I'm on the Apple rooftop! 4th person there!

Joe, the timezone option thing automatically adds on an hour during daylight savings. In Queensland, Australia, we don't have daylight savings so it's saying I've posted my messages an hour in the future.


 

That's an interesting one. There are options in WordPress for setting the timezone. At the moment it's set to London, as it's the nearest area for me, and daylight saving time is automatically adjusted by the server (ours is BST, or British Summer Time).

The alternative is to change it to UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, an equivalent of GMT), but this doesn't compensate for daylight saving and so won't automatically adjust ever. Clearly neither option will work for everyone, as it'll be wrong for around half the year for most people.

I've found a plugin which would override the stated time to display your (and everyone else's) local time. The downside of that is that it'll change all the times for my historical blog entries too, which will mean if you're in Australia some of the dates won't be correct (ie the date of the Apple rooftop concert might be shown as a day other than 30 January 1969, if your timezone is very different from GMT/BST). I'm afraid I'd rather not have that happen, so I'll have to leave it as it is.


 

That's fine. Queensland will probably get daylight savings soon anyway to bring us in line with the other states. We don't have it at the moment because people say it'll be too hot to have more daylight, which I agree with. We need it in winter when the days are short and (relatively) cold, not summer when the days are long and hot already. Also, the farmers say the cows are used to being milked at a certain time so if they try to milk them an hour earlier, they won't like it. a-hard-days-night-john-7
