    Thumbs up

    I've looked, I really really have for a way to change the time format from 24-hour (military) time to 12-hour time. Is there no option to do this on an individual member basis?

    Sadly, this is a board wide setting.

    I would use the word 'pleasingly', having had to write BATch file code to convert from the somewhat confusing 12-hour system (used by FTP, in my instance) to the 24-hour system.
    I even had to construct a diagram!

    Code:
    ::-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ::   refresher course on the 12- and 24-hour clock systems!
    :: hr   |--- Ante Meridiem, before noon --| |--- Post Meridiem, after noon ---|
    :: 12-  12  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9 10 11 12  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9 10 11
    :: 24-  00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23
    ::-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you are really, really, interested in date and time formats for the Regional Settings for various countries in XP, have a look at the attached file! The Key at the bottom gives some explanation.

    Thanks guys for the replies. Guess it's a matter of submission to the powers that be here in this matter of little importance. Having been in the Navy, many many years ago, the 24-hour "Military Time" display isn't totally foreign to me... just an annoyance at this point.

    Phew! Imagine the Furore if it were announced that daily backups would "... start at Seven Bells, Eastern Standard Forenoon"
