    In OS X the time displays as military time. Is it possible to change it to normal time, ie. 9:00PM rather than 21:00? Anybody know how? thanks.

    System Preferesnces > International > Time

    Click on the 24hr and then back to the 12 hour... that should "fix" this bug that was introduced in the 10.1.3 update causing military time to be displayed

    That's odd, I never got that "bug" in 10.1.3... just affected some people?

    My Clock got flipped...

    A while back, my clock got stuck in military time, but I don't think it had anything to do with international settings.

    I just went to my date/time preferences, changed something and got it to save the changed result. That was enough to "unstick" it.

    this won't mean anything to all you americans but i live in Oz.
    all my settings are fine EXCEPT that little drop down date feature on the clock. it insists on using US date format (mm/dd/yyyy)

    any suggestions?

    System prefs>international>date will give you a drop down box of contries and other options to customize the date format.
