I have been away from this site for some time and one thing that is irritating me at the moment is the time given when someone posts.
eg. 01.05PM. This is incorrect and should be shown as 13.05 0r 1.05.
(ie after 12 noon)
01.05 is after midnight and before 12 noon.
I know it is a small issue but does it bother anyone else.
My apologies if this has been discussed previously.

I must admit I had never noticed it before but you are absolutely correct.
Your post was at 08:23 PM. Wrong! The 0 before the 8 signifies AM. If using the 24 hour clock 8:23 PM should be 20:23.

Edit: Just noticed though that it reads correctly on the thread.
