Date and Time

The user guide says if you go to settings from the main menu you can change the date & time (among other things).

But I don't see it. Does anyone know if this is not implemented yet, or if it is automatic?

I vote it should set the date/time each time it connects to the IDS, and the IDS should have a GPS clock.

Any Iliad that doesn't visit the IDS is a rogue Iliad right?

Well, except that if and when Mobipocket is available and I get a library download it will use date & time to verify the expiration. Not certain but that is probably geared to the system clock and I don't know if it will like using GMT. As a minimum, my books would expire five hours earlier so I need to read faster

Most linuxen run GMT system clocks and you then set your timezone to get local time.

If Irex established the standard for the Iliad then Mobipocket would fall in step with all other developers.

Well, exactly. I know there must be a clock. Just needs to be set to local time. I'm sure it still takes the reference from GMT.

(A an aside, if you need better computer reference time, see http://www.worldtimeserver.com/atomic-clock/)
