Hey Maggie,

Maybe this is one of these weird time zone issues, but it looks to me like the Forum is an hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time (Aust) and I wonder if living over yonder you never changed it back at the end of Daylight Saving. That is assuming that the time used here is meant to be Eastern Standard Australian.

Checking on the time...

ETA: Check came up just fine. Posted at 17:15, stamped at 17:15. Is your profile setting to +10 GMT?

Tell me if I'm doing something wrong here, but I can't find any mention of time in my profile. It does say GMT +11 at the top of the forums, though ,and I assumed this was a general setting, rather than one specific to me.

Philip, after you have logged in click on the profile button. When your profile comes up you will see sections with yellow headings. The third one down is headed Preferences. At the bottom of this section it has a choice called Timezone which you can set. After that hit the submit button and it should update your profile/preferences. If you're not logged in the time aways shows +11 GMT.

Holy Frijoles, you guys are on top of things. hehe

And you're all right.
Everyone can/should set their respective time zone in their profile.
But, yes, I had it still set to global GMT+11
I've changed it to GMT+10 and hopefully I'll remember to set it back when the time DST again.
