I've noticed at the top of a few Threads on this Forum the warning "Remove watch".

Now I thought I knew a fair bit about technology, but I just can't figure out why it's important to take my watch off when reading certain threads. It must be a serious issue, since the warnings are in RED.

Thinking about it more, what really worries me, is HOW THE HELL DOES DAVID EVEN KNOW I'M WEARING A WATCH NOW ?????

I need to know the answer TODAY.

Not sure if this is a joke or a real question?

Mike you are obviously referring to knowing ahead of time how to change the time before daylight saving finishes tomorrow morning at 2am.

David installs a virtual watch on your wrist though his server. You cannot see it coz it is only a thread watch - and a very fine thread at that. The removal tool is excellent.

Andrew,
The spooky part of your answer is it's plausible to the point of being believable!!

Look at your watch each time you sit and turn on the puter....watch the second hand..see it fluctuate?..feel that slight warmth in your wrist?....don't look at the watch too closely...tends to affect the eyes!!.....is it just a myth..or is it? hmmmm....

You can, at your member home page, "View Watched Threads" so if you want to keep up on the latest and greatest in shoelaces for example you can do that, also if you go away for a while you can easily catch up on those not to be unwatched threads.

Its more to do with the thread than the watch, the watch is a furphy. I watched a watch once and it disappeared, almost like two negatives equalling a positive.

David knows because David is, or at least he was when he used to be or is as he was to be. Watch this space.
