Hi,
wondering are we all in different time zones, I am doing the wii challenge and it tells me it will start in 18 hours. That will be tomorrow for me as it is now 11.30 am on Monday in Ireland. (it says I posted this at 6.34) so I imagine that is somewhere in the States?)
Just wondering generally where are people from?
As I said I am from Ireland, southern Ireland and it is a cloudy day but mild.
Hope you all have a good day.

I have the same issue. I'm on the East Coast of the US and am ready to post my info, but the challenge says it starts in 14 hours which would be the midnight between the 6th and 7th. So, I guess I'm going to start recording tomorrow morning (the 7th).

The time seems to be displayed right for me who live in Sweden.

Makes me wonder if you have set the Time Zone in "My Account - Change Settings" right?

I have the time zone set correctly and live in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I'm starting the Wii challenge today (might as well), but the challenge appears to start tomorrow.

Thanks all,
good to see where some people are from too. Spam God, thanks for that I was looking for a time zone setting and now found it so it has corrected itself to the correct timing, thanks. I began the challenge today also. Best of luck to all on it

Hi Doirin,

I always like to know where others are from...that's the joy of this whole intrawebs thing after all! I'm in the Pacific Northwest, near Seattle, Washington, US. It's cool, cloudy, and thinking seriously about raining here this afternoon. I believe our time difference from here to there is 7 hours.

I visited Ireland a couple of years ago. It was wonderful. Very much the same sort of climate as here, less mountains more open-ness, equally green! What town are you near?

You can change your time zone by going to My Account and scrolling down near the bottom of the page. That ought to set everything straight.

Hi Morningmoon,
I am in southern Ireland in a place called Kerry. Yes it is green, mainly due to the rain, which we had bucketfuls of today. I had changed my time zone, thanks, so on proper Irish time now, I was reading about 5 hours behind up to then.
Wishing you all the best.

Wow, guess I never thought about there being so many people from so many places around the world. I am from sunny Florida, I wish we had some of the cooler weather I have been hearing about, it was about 95 degrees today, but the humidity made it so much worse!!
Isnt technology amazing that we can can all talk to each other from all around the globe??!!

I lived most of my life in the environs of Washington, D.C. in the United States. I now live almost in the dead center of the country, 35 miles East of Kansas City, Missouri. It is an absolutely gorgeous, windy, late summer day here. I just want to sit out and glory in it. It's been a miserably rainy, hot, humid summer. This is SUCH a relief. LOL. May I please come visit you Doirin? Smile

Hi All,
it is great to hear where people are from, amazing that Lee is starting Spring in New Zealand where we are having almost the same temp but we are a 2nd month of Autumn and we don't get the lovely summers you probably get. We just had another mediocher summer, cool, cloudy with the odd pet sunny day. When the sun comes out the Irish go mad and everyone ends up in A& E with sun stroke (slight exaggeration)
It would be nice to have more sun but I don't want the humidity. Johanne, sounds like your climate now late summer is just like ours in the best of summers, so it should give you some idea.
It is amazing to think Samoa is 12 hours behind, so it's near midnight for you now, that's a bit of a head wreck when you think of it. Did visit California for my honeymoon at Thanksgiving time 9 years ago, it felt like an Irish early summer day. Can't imagine what it must be like in the summer. Florida must be hot hot hot. It's amazing to think of the mix on here, China must be great, enjoy!
Take care and thanks.
Doirin

changing specific macros
If you go to 'my profile' at the bottom you can choose which 6 stats you'd like to follow, such as salt, sugar, out of a possible 10. Though I don't think the pie chart can be changed.
