Want to make your site faster?

Your computer, in fact, every computer, including this server, keeps near-perfect time, assuming all is working right. Most forums, in general, output the time in straightforward layouts and terms...ie... yesterday, today, tomorrow-- and only start to show the actual time once it becomes older (however long your software and settings determine age).  Even if you disable that function, most forums usually still try to simplify the time by converting...ie... May 1, 2021 8:35 PM.

The way your computer can process time by default is simple %c which reads out as Sat May 1 20:35:00 2021. 

On a small website, you will not notice much (if any) difference at all. But on a much larger site with many active members and guests continuously online, there will be a noticeable difference. While the readout may not be pretty, you are no longer converting, and that little bit can make a big difference.
