I've changed the colour scheme for my journal - this is the sort of thing I wanna use for my webpage (which I'm starting to construct - atm it's purely a small bit of content, so I'm not uploading till it's got the colours in but I have to read 2 chapters of the book on CSS first).

CSS rocks... and your computer's clock appears to be a day ahead of what it should be.

J said I should learn CSS from the start, coz I've only learnt as much HTML as I needed for LJ (today I learnt how to make a proper HTML document, like with head and body tags and such :) and I'm inordinately proud of myself despite it being simple ;) ), so I gotta read about it first now.

And yeah. It's not the clock, it's a lovely Linux+Mozilla+LJ+GMT issue with the date ... I've just changed it, just before I saw your comment. It's annoying, but I suspect it's an especially esoteric bug in Mozilla - I should bug it, but I'm not quite sure what could be going wrong. It only happens on the update bit of LJ (not in 'edit entries' for instance where it puts todays date in for 'specific date') and it only happens in GMT not BST. I think it only happens in Linux too - but it's been a while since I updated from Windows.

I'm sorry... you've told me that before, but I'm a doofus! The JavaScript which puts in the date and time on the update page has always been a little screwy: on MacOS I believe IE ends up getting it an hour out during daylight savings time, too. We LiveJournal devs blame the browsers for having bad JavaScript implementations, but I've not actually done any proper testing to know if the blame really does lie there.

Have you tried using LogJam (aka LoserJabber)? ;)

I tried that once - but to be honest I prefer to use the webpage ... I just gotta remember the date thing (which is a trifle easier when I've not consumed quite so much alkyhol ;) )
