Daylight Savings Time

Post by Mike Cash » Mon 10.30.2006 5:45 am

Is it just me, or have post times suddenly shifted backwards one hour?

I posted this at 18:45 local, and the post time shows as 17:45 for me. The times were fine until the US switched back to standard time.

hrmmm....

i posted this at around 1:59 am. and it seems to be correctly displayed for me.

update:
if your problem continues, i recommend going to your profile and editing your Time Offset value so that things look correct to you...

i hesitate to want to look into how the server actually thinks about time... all of my servers have their internal clock set to UTC (and stay sync'd to GPS satellite time) and use timezone info to get the actual local time. but some other servers will set their internal clock to localtime and change it when daylight savings time rolls around. PHP-Fusion might also have a bizarre concept of "just what time is it now". it makes my head hurt to think about it. :)

update again:
on the wiki, i had to go to my preferences and change the 'Date and Time' settings to get a proper time. stupid servers.. :)

Yabbut you live in SoCal so you shifted time. I live in Japan, where we didn't.
