Timezone?

It's sad that americans still forget they're not the only nation/time in the world..

Maybe someone should throw an oz or pound of rocks at them from a few feet away..?

yeah, and I check these forums all day long when I am home... it disappoints me that from 8-12PM GMT there are like 200 posts (not really, but a lot) and during the work day for us, but in the afternoon here there are NO posts...

I don't think Bill Gates (Mac Guy) has been here long enough to say that.

Actually, he has been here for a while, and I have noticed that too, so get off his case.

I dont think you're in a position to speak either Nathan.

Damn americans.. Really..

This post is made at 6pm.. happy now?



It would be interesting to know how you reached the "no posts at this time" conclusion.. did you read the date and time of EVERY post in the forum or what?

I don't consider 15th Aug 2005 to be that long ago Nathan. I am still kind of new and I am only 3 days younger than Bill (on this forum :)).

I think is a very silly topic (worse than 'Linux Revolution') and continuing it would only be flaming. There is no 'dead time' on this forum!
