To do this, go to Options -> Account Preferences and select your updated timezone, being either the normal one or the daylight savings one.

Old news archives now in this weblog

We previously used a XHTML-based system for reporting FastMail.FM news; now, of course, we use this weblog. Onno has now kindly completed a system for importing all those old news archives into this weblog. You can use the links to prior months on the right to view these articles. The title for any imported article is always “Imported older news”, since the previous system did not have article titles.
