I'm a retired sysadmin - mostly unix, and anything else except Micro$oft - with 30+ years in IT. Still run systems at home, dabble a bit with websites (typically Joomla!), am a moderator on one Joomla extension's forum, and contribute a bit on other forums.
Have used geekzone often in the past as a guest, usually as a result of a Google search. Joined so that I could add a problem of my own.
My pet peeves: 1. Mysteries that I can't solve; 2. Computer software, OS'es, firmware etc that is written for the masses and can't deal with something a little out of the ordinary or is blatantly wrong! 3. Incorrect details.

One peeve coming up :-)
I joined on Sunday, 6 December NZDT. Forget the exact time, but the time zone selector on my profile said Dec 5 so I changed it to the correct time. My public profile now says I joined on 5 Dec!!
After reading the email which suggested I post here, before doing so I decided to add an avatar - the time on my profile said Dec 6 03:06. But it really was Dec 7 01:06 - some 22 hours later. So I changed it to the correct time, added my avatar, and guess what? According to my profile, I added a face at 03:06 on Dec 6. (See pet peeve #2&3 above). Will be interesting to see what time this post claims to have been submitted - it's now 2:00 Dec 7

Definitely look at your timezone.

The file for your avatar is definitely timestamped 7-DEC-2015 1:06am (according to the file system) and the badge record is 7-DEC-2015 1:06am.

Thanks for your time. My timezone was still wrong, I set it again & now times showing are correct. Not sure what was up, maybe I didn't hit Update? I should have!
