What's up with the times?

At the bottom it says "All times are GMT -8". OK, but right now that corresponds to... somewhere in middle the Pacific ocean west of California. The west coast is currently in PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) which is GMT-7. Does the forum software not follow daylight savings?

Re: What's up with the times?

The report you see depends on your default timezone (which you control in your profile). I'm on the East Coast, and set it to Eastern time. I currently see the message "All times are GMT-4", which is Eastern DAYLIGHT Time. GMT is Greenwich Mean Time and does not change for Daylight Savings (or "Summer Time", as they actually call it over there).

So, GMT-8 is . . . I have no idea . . . Alaska? Do they use Daylight Savings up there? Try setting your time zone in your profile to your local time zone (Central, yes?) which should then report GMT-5, which is CDT.

I'm ashamed at having made such a noob mistake. Thanks for setting me straight.
