Same here, only spot errors after posting despite proof reading first.  ???

Its probably normal, thus why hiring dedicated proof readers was a thing.  I've seen enough mistakes in news articles, especially the BBC who tend to open quote then never close it again.

I think its just that your brain knows what you mean/meant to write so you just read it back as you meant to write it, rather than how you did.

That's definitely a factor.  I've read what I posted three times before, then realised what I'm reading in my head is not what I wrote.

Especially common is missing three letter words like "the" in the middle of a sentence.  Its a known thing your brain is great at filling in gaps, but its problematic if you're trying to write a coherent sentence.

And I just did another one there, I wrote coherence instead of coherent but I caught it before posting.  ???

Proof reading, I should be better at this, being Ex print trade including pre press. I lost count of how many times I spotted syntax/spelling/etc  :blush: when your on the press it's all you can see.
Any how I digress, back to business.  The TP Link app has two places where you can check the current Time Zone in use, mine was using America/Dawson in the App settings ??? and London/Gmt on the device settings ??? ???
I found this anomaly whilst trying to work out why the on/off times were a bit askew.
The App claims to Automagically pick up the Time zone from the Mobile phone!   I've never been to Dawson!.. Been to Vancouver  :)
The other Smart switch I use 'TCP' their App has only one entry for time zone management.

Forgot to add the time zone setting shown in the app was correct but wrong in the info part ??? ??? so you need to manually select somewhere else to correct the info part.
