backdating & use current time checkboxes?

Hello I've just started using both LJ and iJournal and am not sure where to look for documentation/info. My first question is about the 'Use current time' & 'backdated' checkboxes on the New Entry page of the OSX client. What exactly do these do? When do I want/need to use each checkbox? They sound like they should be mutually exclusive, but I haven't played around with it, I hope there's someone in the know who can tell me?
TIA
Stephane

If you have the "use current time" checked then the time in the time and date boxes will be ignored and the time that is used in the post will be generated dynamically (yes, it is annoying that there isn't better feedback as to what this means but we can probably come up with something good in 2.0).

"Backdated" is the term that LJ uses for entries that you don't want to be posted to the top of all your friends' pages. Sometimes someone backdates an entry if they just want it to be informational on their personal page but not actively in the way on their friends' friends pages.
