    how are we supposed to know when the 24 hours end? i have no ideia about the exact time that this was posted.
    you should do like in the " 24 Hours B&W Medium Format Rumble" and say something like: Wednesday 20th August 18.00 CET. that's much more accurate, don't you think?

  30. tomk32
    tomk32 ·

    @paper_doll: right you are, but the first comment was eight hours ago.

  31. anglemort
    anglemort ·

    oh yes, agree with paper doll and an idea for the beta : could you introduce a CET clock somewhere in lomo, for to know end of special deal, rumble etc ?

  32. xbalboax

    these boots are made for walking

  33. paper_doll

    anglemort, that sounds like a good ideia!

  34. anarchy

    Isn't it always 18:00 CET (end of the rumble)? In that case it's easy to know because of the date stamp in the header, just count 1 day forward and then 18:00 CET, but sure, a nice little clock or even a realtime countdown would of course make things a lot easier for the ones that are several hours off from CET...

    oh my, it's working only in Safari.

  37. plaidleaf

    i know adding a clock would make it much easier for me... then i wouldn't have to reference my google clock widget every time i look at the LSI site. the clock could even use the little lomo boy face at the center... :)

    @mattcharnock they look a bit too polka. my favourites is a pair of light, brown leather shoes which I bought for 8€ a few years ago. I just give the into repair over and over again.

  55. tomk32

    @agrimony, @poshone: If you'd read the small text below then you'd know that it can take some time until your uploads show up. Soon they will show up in your lomohome too.
