Time change
« on: November 03, 2008, 09:56:03 AM »
I noticed today when I logged on that the time was off by an hour.
I had to adjust my profile to show the change due to DST.
Is this something I need to do every spring and fall or is there a setting you can check that will update the time automatically?

Thanks!

I'll inform the server owner to check the server's NNTP.  The server may have not grabbed the time change from the time servers on the net.

Probably not or they haven't been updated to the time-fix patch since DST was moved.
My phone system is ancient and I had to adjust the time on the system this morning.
Thanks ducky!
