Time Zones Implemented

Time Zones stuff now works, but I've only changed a few dates so far, so bear with me for a time.

If you spot any I haven't done, point them out so I don't forget. And, as usual, let me know if anything has stopped working...

I'm now going to go home and collapse after working later trying to get our new corporate site (pa.press.net) working for tomorrow...I hate deadlines.

Top Edit box (by User Profile).

What does everybody think of the new time format? I can make it look like however you want, within sensible limits...it's hopefully a lot more human readable than before, but if there's anything else, let me know, as usual.

You know what'd be really usefull about the time zones? if you'd mention what it offsets to. Allright so i know that it's to GMT, but bear in mind that other (mostly american) people use other time zone thingies... so they might get confused about it.

Good point :P

Notice I fixed your bug too? It started cutting off at the age on my home computer too...so I was able to trace it...go figure :P

I put -4 and something went wrong. It didn't have my correct time.

No? Weird, it works properly for me now.

Exactly how much was it out by?

Ugh.

Oh, and Wanderer...the problem was... an HTML comment. No, seriously. I put it in when debugging the DOB->Age calculation, and it sees to screw up browsers...go figure...

now that's weird.

ARSE

OK, is anybody else's timezone 2/3 hours ahead of what it should be?

My offset should be zero, naturally...yet I seem to need to put it to -3 to get the correct time...I thought this had stopped happening, but I just checked, and it was only because my offset had magically set itself to -3 again.

*is confuzzed*

If everyone is out by the same amount, then I'll just hard code the error correction, and assume it's a screwy time value on the server...

Damnation and Sodomy

OK, never mind, I fixed it...

I store the date in the DB. Except I store it in GMT. Then I was taking it out, saying convert this to a GMT date /again/ when adding on the timezone difference and printing.

AAARRGGGGHHH
