    My time is 8:34 and yet the BB time of posts is 26 minutes ahead. That's confusing ........ any idea why?

    I have 9:04. I have no idea what time it will say I posted this. I have also noticed the time is not the same on all the Forums. :confused:

    oh my, it's 9:30 am, darkest 9:30 am I ever saw. My computer says 9:00 pm, and my wall clock says
    9:05 pm. I think I need to reset something.

    I saw this episode on both The Twilight Zone and Star Trek: The Next Generation!!

    In the Twilight Zone their clock went backwards.

    In Star Trek they blamed the Rommulians!

    But all the stars lived through it--simply because they would have to be on the next episode the next week!!

    I talked about the same issue on the never ending discussion thread.

    People agree that the BB clock is wrong - but no good answer as to why.

    How about one of you moderators telling us why the discrepancy?

    Blackbird...the funny thing is that Sherrie and I just discussed this in this forum recently. Isn't it funny how there are no original thoughts in the world? Too funny.

    You girls are waaaaaaay over Blackbird's head--and I'm afraid ya'll are gonna "clip his wings!" so he can't fly anymore!!

    I'm gonna have to give ya'll a dose of my truth serum--the hardest double agent will talk after that!!

    Blackbird

    PS--there ain't no clock in Blackbird's church--none whatsoever! Why let time dictate what eternity is tryin' to say???

    The clock on the BB is set by our server, not by us. Every so often, we write them and ask them to set it back correctly.

    It drives me up the wall as well. You would think that in this day and age the software would remain somewhat more accurate.

    Ah, who would want to do that to you David? We love you just the way you are...(or more acurately...because of the way you are)...so you needn't worry about any clipping from me, If you weren't here to joke around with.... well, you know...not everyone has as good a sense of humor as you do...I've tried teasing other people, and it was like the Titans were unloosed. Whoa Nelly.... Scarey. :eek: [​IMG] ;)

    Maybe the clock is closer to reality today - earlier my post and the clock were only 4 minutes apart - if its true - its probably my clock now!!!


    PS - post 8:37 am -- my clock 8:33 am -- now it must be me!!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    PSS - Did Clint get in touch with the server - or did they fix it all on their own? [​IMG]
