    There is an analog clock at the top of the mainpage. But it seems not match to my clock in my computer and GMT time. What does the clock for?

    It'll go by the server time (US EST).

    Incidentally, filburt, you could fix it easily by having an iframe on the main page that the clock resides in. When the main page loads, it opens the iframe page with the javascript Date() param which will then put the local time on the clock.

    Then again, maybe it would be best to keep it at the server time, so people will see what time their posts are going in. Local time is easily seen on the taskbar.

    One suggestion I'd make is to add the option of showing time in the user's preferred time-zone, which would just add the timezone offset value stored in the user's profile. That wouldn't require any client-side scripting, either.

    Or maybe show both clocks. EST (WDF actual time - for contest posts and what not.) and Time Zone adjusted (Local WDF time - for regular posts).

    yes i think the last one would be useful, but i wouldnt say you have to change the analog clock. Possibly you could just put somewhere on the page WDF time and your time in text

    I stopped reading right there

    I have an idea on how to sync it to server time but I don't have the time to mess with it right now.
