  • BidorBuy Time? - Check this out!

    I accidentally clicked my mouse on a "Bidorbuy Time" link right at the bottom of the Home Page.
    However, according to this funny looking "Time Machine", it is currently 05:39 on Friday 25 April.
    This is the weirdest time thingy I have ever seen!

      The digital time just above that time board is correct. Look at the actual placings of the indicators on the slides.

            If I look at the time scale, my indicators on the slides are as follows:
            "Day of the week" - Pointed between Friday & Saturday.
            "Month" - Pointed between April & May.
            "Date" - Pointed at number 25.
            "Hours" - Pointed between numbers 5 & 6 A.M.
            The 'Minutes" and "Seconds" slides are actually moving horizontally.

                      This is quite strange and should display accurately and will also take any timezone into consideration. As people could surf from different timezones, we display the clock according to our server-time and then count on the time based on your computer's elapsed time.

                      Could you perhaps right-click on the browser window, then select "View Source" (I think in IE it is under one of the menu options) and then search for __serverTime and paste that line for me here.

                      As the time displayed is computed locally, based on your regional settings, this might be either a browser glitch or a bug for us displaying the time under certain scenarios, but it will not affect your bidding or any other transactional processing on Bob. The time-widget happened on a dark/cold and bored winter evening ;-)

                        You know this might be a sign for you to actually go check out that time and date, maybe something important happened that is linked to you, our DSTV also done this but it showed 1st of January 1970, i actually forgot, i am going to check that out right now!

                            Looks alright. What browser version and operating system are you running?

                              The digital part of my clock is 100% correct. The grey part with the slides on the clock is stuck in April.
                              I use Windows XP Pro with IE7.
