I have no problem finding a world clock, thanks, but I mean a widget that would show on my Cellar posts.

What difference does it make what time the post was made, or you reply, in the posters home time zone? It's not a phone where you might wake them by posting. Your reply won't wither and blow away, before they get back to read it. You've completely confused me.

It's mostly for the convenience of others, as an enhancement to "conversation." For instance, sometimes it's helpful to know if a poster is sipping their morning coffee or tucking themselves into bed for their beauty sleep.

If people actually put where they were living under their names that would do the trick.

yeah, it would. Assuming one can keep time zones in mind, and do math.

Rather big assumptions when it comes to me, I'm afraid.

I need to circumnavigate the globe!

:D

thank you. but a wee bit too big to put on every post, doncha think?

TheMercenary 01-01-2008 10:08 PM

Yea, no not on every post silly woman!

Just for you to look up where everyone was and make it easy to figure out time. Simple math.

But it would only work if people posted where they were. So I guess it will never work. :D

But then you're reading between the lines and making assumptions that may not be valid, or worse embarrassingly wrong.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

we all go through life interpreting data, and we may often be wrong, and often embarassed. So what?

monster 01-01-2008 11:59 PM

Oh get a room, you two.....

xoxoxoBruce 01-02-2008 12:27 AM

Aw, go sit on a snow pile.

monster 01-02-2008 12:34 AM

what? no arguing about which time zone the room should be in?
