I don't know if it has to do with the international date line but I think the date that comes up when we post on the forum is a day of ?
Can it have to do with its a leap year this year?

You are a day ahead of us and the site is set to US standard time. It is not set to GMT time so when you post it shows the time as Eastern US standard time. I have the same problem when I post on a friends site in southern Europe. It gets me so confusded at times that I acturaly whent to work one sunday thinking it was monday. :? :shock:

You are six hours ahead of EST in the US.  When you post at 21:23 (9:23PM) our time, it is 03:23 (AM) the next morning, your time.  If you post before 6:00 PM (18:00) EST, midnight your time, the day will read the same.
