When does the forum change from one 'day' to the next? For example, if someone had 100 posts after 20 days, it would read 5 posts per day, at waht time does this number change to 100/21=4.762? I would have thought that the time would be right on the mark, i.e 12 o'clock but it isn't  [???] [???] Anyone know why that is and the actual time that it changes 'days'?

I posted this at 10:06:59 and my 'day' still hadn't changed from one to the next  [???]

Aha, now it has changed
The time was 10:12:26. Thus, sometime between those two times the forum clock moved from one 'day' to the next. Now I've just got to pin point that time exactly   [8)]

DOH! I just missed it! [:(!]
This one appeared at 10:08:55 a.m.
The 'day' has changed!, now I know that it is sometime between 10:07:31 and 10:08:55.
I'm thinking 10:08:00 might be when it changes, but I'll have to wait to find out  [:(] [:(]

*Kicks the clock.*
It says it changes time at 12:00:00.
Nothing is absolute. It takes a thousand people to make a stereotype, only one to grind it into the dust.

Okay, so my theory of it being at 10:08:00 is wrong, I've narrowed it down to between 10:07:23 and 10:07:46, 23 seconds difference.

Well the thing is, I'm never going to actually see the clock change, I just have to refresh the pages very very quickly and they take about 1-2 seconds to pop up which is why I can never be sure of the exact time, if you know what I mean.

Can you not get multiple pages up and then start refreshing them all in sequence?
