I wonder why you feel offended by my first question - attempted you really read
and understood it -.
I am long from being able to undedrstand DT's code.
I just meant to ask : where does DT read the data it displays.
Then, you start speaking of semantics and think I'm someone very stupid - well,
I admit I sometimes can be inattentive and miss some details -.
> You might also google for EXIF SEMANTICS
This still doesn't answear the question : why would you want me to do the
opposite of what I want ?
Why should I ignore the only tag that DT actually takes into account ?
As this is the one DT reads to display the information, why would I have to let
it wrong when I could modify it and have DT display the correct value ?
I know it is possible to specify an offset value from within DT, but this will
be lost as soon as the database is reset and/or the sidecar is erased.
How will I remember, say, 6 months later, that some peculiar photos were shot
with wrong date / time value ?
