There is no need for rudeness. Everyone has a right to post politely on any thread. If anyone has a problem with someone else, take it private, dont subject the rest of us to it.

If your finding the time sync's annoying then you can always manually adjust your timezone ahead. Im in sydney and its annoying and the 1st work around (uncheck auto-adjust and set forward an hour) kept stuffing up cause of time sync so i found that setting my timezone to +11 meant it works fine and has no problems with time syncs

Isnt it possible to modify the way mIRC is calculating timestamp, or to at least make a new timestamp variable correct using a script.

Someone ?

I think the main reason for this post was to alert ppl to this bug that is there, and it is anoying but not the end of the world as noted
I have it at the moment im from NZ running XP + sp1

but it does not kill any scripts that i run but it is anyong none the les
but atm just using
alias _timestamp { return $calc($time(hh) + 1) $+ $time(:nn) }


Lets get dirty

<a little off-topic>

I guess you're fine with displaying 24:00 instead of 00:00, but I'd like to point out that if you're going to use more than "HH:nn[:ss]" (like days, weeks, whatever), you need a $ctime calculation in order to make it work properly (ie. "30/10/03 00:05" rather than "29/10/03 24:05").
This can be achieved using $time($calc(3600+$ctime) [,format])

</a little off-topic>

Just do what some guy/gal said before...

Turn off the feature in your windows time that auto updates to daylight savings, just double click on your time and look around. Then just manually adjust your time until it's fixed in mIRC.


You won't like it when I get angry.

All i can do when i adjust stuff is set my system clock 1 hour fast , and that screws everything up rather than mIRC. I've handed this error for the last few weeks, but i'm sick of sitting on IRC and realising i'm late for work/engagements i should be early for. Surely it's not *THAT* hard to fix?

Very frustrated with clocks all over the place here.

So don't use mIRC as a clock ... I'm sure it'll get fixed when it gets fixed.

Just wanted to clarify a comment I first noticed being made by darkbeholder. I was helping someone from the Australia GMT+10 timezone who currently is during Daylight Saving Time. He was able to get the correct mIRC time by selecting in XP a timezone that was GMT+11 which didn't have daylight savings time. I'm confident a new mIRC version will be available before most of the northern hemisphere switches to summertime.
