@dylanfoxkearney @martinwalsh You’re more than welcome. As you can see, this subject strikes a chord with a good number of us.

@stokely Thanks, Sarah. It’s all blood under the bridge now, at least as far as I’m concerned, but I still point the finger of blame.

@WarWraith This is almost the archetype story, isn’t it. @dylanfoxkearney is probably writing down your name now. ;)

So @dylanfoxkearney needs someone to throw one last $50 into the pot in the next hour for this doco to be a thing. pozible.com/project/197441

@Pozible I’ll still file something more formal as a bug report if you need it / can’t track it down from that info.

via TweetDeck

@Pozible When entering my last project pre-DST, I selected “2130 AEST” as the end time. Project page displayed as “2230 AEDT” but it wasn’t.

via TweetDeck

@Pozible That bug I mentioned. Check this page. pozible.com/project/197441 “1348 AEDT” is in two hours, not one hour. It’s what misled me too.

Hmmm… I think the person who’s phoning me at 1100 (23 minutes ago) must be in Queensland and hasn’t converted the time zone.

@WarWraith As you may or may not know, the military’s poor handling of PTSD has been something very close to me.

@WarWraith That was a trite response from me, sorry. Or it may have sounded so. I’ve read a lot about this on the past.
