Time Zones

I'm sorry if this is too OT, but it has been driving me crazy. I hope it is media releated enough (the thinking being that DVI is media) to warrant posting it here.

The time zone selection on the "Edit Options" offers a selection for GMT -5 "Eastern Time". I am in Indiana near Indianapolis and the time here is in fact GMT -5.

The part that is driving me crazy is that daylight savings is being applied so the GMT -5 is actually GMT -4.
I keep finding myself late after thinking "Oh, I've got plenty of time to keep reading the forum." :)

There is no DST in this part of indiana, as wierd as that may seem. In most time-zone configurable applications you will see two selections for eastern time, like:

USA Eastern: -5 hours (Local summer -4 hours)
USA Indiana East: -5 hours

Alternately, you'll have a straight adjustment to GMT with a checkbox or the like for "DST applies".

Is there any chance the server wizard can add a timezone?

Just to make things simpler, my suggestion would be to use the clock on your own computer which I assume is set to your local time. I've always got mine on in the bottom right corner of the screen - in fact I hadn't noticed there was a time indicator on the forum until you pointed it out...

Regards
Jon

Take control of forum time display by clicking on the control panel (the "user cp" button at top of page) and choosing "Edit Options." Check the appropriate forum time offset. Hope this helps,

D'oh! One of our forum moderators pointed out to me that I completely misread your post, sorry... I'll check with the software maker, but in the meantime, now that DST is over, is the situation resolved for now? Sorry 'bout that -- thanks,
