Date solved?
Answer
8/5/11 9:27 PM
I know that this is really unimportant in the scheme of thing but I am curious. Why does the clock show just after 9pm GMT and the date as Aug 5 but the date my puzzle I have just solved shows as 6 August?

Regards
Nicki

The clock on the top right side is GMT. The puzzle's timestamp is according to the webserver. During summer there are 3 hours difference (Daylight Saving Time) and during the winter - 2 hours difference. So, 9PM GMT+3 hours = midnight. i.e.: next day.
