(TT Time is US Central Standard Time. You can set your timezone accordingly) - from the edit account button
This is no longer true.
TT posters can change the TT time displayed in the drop down menu. (for Central, set to '+ 2 hours' instead of 'Central/TT time')

“If you're referring to the missing posts, Matt still has them all on his machine ... it wasn't possible to do an instantaneous switch. At least that's what I was told when talking to him and some of the folks that work with me.”

“Ok, how about now? *cross fingers*”
“0832 in Spokane”
“is it 2007 or 1907?”

“2107 ... does that work?”
“Was there a certain number of posts someone had to make, before they were able to post a new thread? I'd never seen that option on the old site for my account, so I'd thought maybe that was the case. Can anyone confirm?”

I always enjoyed time travel, except for the tense changes... especially when you toss in the conditionals.
e.g. "will not have been"..... WTF?”
“Post a New Thread
Create a New Account
Trail Talk Main Page
All all these are gone from the right hand side.”
“Ah, yep, thanks .. I'll see what I can do about getting the right side bar back to how it was. Not sure why it wouldn't have happened automatically.”

Ya got 1 hr to get them back or I'll start posting ad hominem's on the other side.”

“I haven't hurt Matt, I promise.”
“Pest, i mean test.”
“Is it on Haylight savings time?”
“e.g. "will not have been"..... WTF?”
You mean "Willhaven", no? I haven't cojugated for time travel in a while though. Anyone got The Guide handy?”
“'Twould appear so... but you may need to reset preferred time zone in 'edit account'.
"Eastern +1 hour" doesn't yield Eastern any more, whereas "+3" does reset thread times to EDT... no problem.”
“For any form of activity happening in the future, on- is added at the beginning of action verbs showing that that action is performed whenever you get to the point in time and space when/where it occurs. Linking verbs used before such an action verb have an added at the end of the word (and willan is used if there is no other linking verb). If the action is continuous (-ing), then willing _____ (action verb)-en is used. The phrase going to normally is used if something is certain to happen, and if you are futurating then it is, so as it is somewhat awkward will or some form of it is always used. Will have been is self-evident, replacing DNA’s wioll haven be which possibly will be used in other more complex ways.
Example: In it, guests take (willan on-take) their places and eat (willan on-eat) sumptuous meals while watching(willing watchen) the whole of creation explode around them.
For the past, had- is added at the beginning of action verbs showing that that action was performed whenever you get to the point in time and space when/where it occurs. Linking verbs used before such an action verb have ad added at the end of the word (and wased [wuz·ed] is used if there is no other linking verb). If the action was continuous, then wassing (wuz·ing)(or wering [whir·ing] _____ (action verb)-ed is used.
There is much more to be said about the grammar of time travel, what is above being only the basics, and some of it only from a first-person perspective.”
