I'm pretty sure the 4 hour thing is just something that hasn't been fixed yet to reflect actual time allotted. I think that's what Springer meant when he said 2 pages on inaccurate php information. What is a php? Beats me. OK I Googled it and am now fairly certain that's what he meant.

Me too. I have the worst typos. I don't see them in preview. It's when I go back to read it. Looks like I can't spell or have poor grammar. Or the apple autocorrect puts some dumb word in.

Nobody has yet pointed this out;
When you go into "edit" on a post, there is a message about the edit box telling you how much time you have got left.
This message counts down from 120 minutes, which is two hours in the rest of the universe.
Once THAT time expires, you get that new message which rests on the unconscious assumption that 1 hour is 30 minutes. That is all. A miscalculation.
So it is NOT a time-zone issue. But I think it used to be a timezone issue, because the barrier went down when it was midnight at some point in the U.S. That's why that explanation keeps being put forward.

This is my problem. I have seen the 4 hour notice several times, much less than 4 hours after I post.
Even the preview feature does not help me with my typos. I know what I wrote, so when I make I typo I generally know my thought and just look right through a typo. That is until I walk away and come back.
