    Re:What's your user id?

    Apparently the registration date and time depends on which time offset you use. I use 6, if I change to 5 I get this:

    Date Registered: May 26, 2001, 04:46:01 PM

    I guess the registration date is irrelevant if not everyone is using the same time offset.

    Edit - Kenshi should probably have a lower uid than me anyway. Weird, it looked correct when I checked my and Vinceīs uids.

    I changed the time offset to 5, and have this:

    I still registered before Mimi, and I also registered before ursidae, so I should have a lower uid ???

    I'm getting a bad identity crisis now. Aahh, help, I don't know who I am anymore!! :P

    Kenshi, let's start a "people with wrong uid" club. :P

    I just changed my time offset back to Arizona time and my sign-up date is now:

    May 26, 2001, 06:43:50 PM

    It is still later than Ngene's, but fits pretty well with Ursidae's

    Go Figure?

    Well I didn't think that I was user 399, in fact I thought I registered here quite early on.

    I have never been very good with this AM/PM thingy (I think it sucks). When is 12:40:46 PM? Isnīt it after 04:46:01 PM?

    I have always thought that AM/PM are 12 hours each. Shouldnīt

    be

    May 27, 2001, 00:40:46 AM?

    Is 12:40:46 PM lunch time or in the middle of the night? 12:40 or 00:40?

    I have now changed the time format in my profile so I actually now what time it is

    I spent a *lot* time wondering how it goes. I've never been good with AM/PM either, but I'm pretty sure 12:40:46 is lunch time and not the middle of the night.

    When it's 01:00 in the afternoon, it's 01:00 PM, right?
    I figured when it's 12:59 in the afternoon, it's also 12:59 PM.

    So when it's 01:00 in the night, it's 01:00 AM.
    That's why I think when it's 12:59 in the middle of the night, it's 12:59 AM.

    I think 00:01 - 12:00 is AM, and 12:01 - 24:00 is PM.

    So, I'm registered before you :P

    Since I am a nice guy, I will tell you

    The time in an AM/PM world goes like this :

    Midnight == 12AM == 00:00
    1AM == 01:00
    ..
    11AM
    NOON == 12 PM == 12:00
    1 PM == 13:00
    ..
    11PM
    MIDNIGHT == 12AM = 00:00

    Any questions still ?
