    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.

    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.
