    I assume you have something wrong with your timezone.

    Hmm, interesting. Not sure where Mystic gets its TZ information from. The system clock is on local time.

    Yeah I've noticed my BBS logs are in UTC, while the system clock is on local time. Well, being a net for radio hobbyists, UTC does seem rather appropriate. :D

    I noticed times were not making any sense on the GameNet hub. That hub actually runs in a data center, somewhere I'm not sure where.

    So I set synchronet to use UTC time at the hub and since then the times look good.

    On my own BBS here it is set to use PST or PDT during the daylight time change and both Mystic and Synchronet work with that. I'm not sure if there is a way to tell Mystic about a different time zone.

    They had also issues with the reachablity, as it was dependent on europe only data.
    (the map where it showed how far the sender can be registered).

    I had some time to install the Nextion display a bought some time ago for my MMDVM Pi Star.
    That thing is very strange ... it is a complete computer with multiple MBs of flash.
    You flash the pictures into the display. (either with serial or with the MicroSD Slot on the back of the unit).
    It then gets commands via a serial port from the pi.
    Like display DAPNET logo, write this below, write that to the left etc.
    It can also be used to give commands via the touchscreen. (not yet implemented)
