Ohh and another minor one but could lead to confusion at certains times of the year. We're UK based, all the systems have UK dates but the StarWind browse dialog displays in USA format:

Rob,

thank you for your feedback! We've opened a bug tracker case and you should see this one fixed with V5.7 Gold or V5.8 in the worst case. I think we'll turn to more reasonable ctime(...) UNIX date & time formatting like "Fri Jan 28 01:02:40 2012".

Also shame on our team for misspelling "date" as "data" ((

Thanks again :)

Anton

LOL - I hadn't spotted the "Date/Data" misspelling and I'm normally a stickler for things like that ;-)

Cheers, Rob.

I do... As it's probably the first thing teachers do point at high school for non-native English speakers. At least here.

In British English and American English there are many differences and I often happen to do misspellings. For that reason when I do research paper I have my paper edited.

Happens to me too. Practice makes it better though.

Transpires as well. Practice improves it however.
