    It's A Bit Difficult

    Most of my friends are literally on another continent, so I'm always atleast 5-15 hours behind or forward. I wake up when they're sleeping or vice versa. I can talk to them now cuz I'm on summer vacation, I don't think I'll be able to when school reopens.

    Timestamps?

    Has anyone worked out how to get the site to display the times messages were sent etc in their own timezone rather than GMT-6? I've set the "timezone" thing on my profile to GMT, but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.

    I'm Right In the Middle.

    I'm in the GMT time in the middle.. Most of the time my friends are just going to school when I've just come back.. or they're going to sleep when its still the middle of the afternoon for me. It can be sort of annoying sometimes when I really want to talk to someone but as...
