The time zones, they are a-changing

Weekly Update

Time zones are confusing enough as it is - I should know, I was very confused when the clocks went forward on Sunday - so we weren't helping things by displaying timestamps on the dashboard in UTC for those of you in other parts of the world. Now if you hover over a timestamp (or tab to the timestamp with the keyboard), it'll display the timestamp in both UTC and your local time, in a format a bit more familiar to you (like MM/DD/YY for you folks in the US).
