Hmm. Interesting. To follow on from the above questions...
...Timezone offset is normally (international standard time method) set relative to GMT.
Peering into the murk, I see (mutter, mutter) the forum time appears - for no other reason than, I suppose, the server's physical location - to be GMT-6. Thus although I live at GMT, my time offset is not 0 (as autodetected by the forum) but +6. Huh?
This appears to be very arbitrary, and whilst the maths is bad enough for me (based as I am in GMT and thus only used to doing time offsets when I travel for business) i can't imagine what confusion/annoyance awaits for someone in (say) India. As they are already at Global Mean Time (GMT) +5.5, they then have to do two offsets added together.
Is there any really good reason that the forum time is somewhere in the central USA, and not an international standard time?
Have to say that this sort of issue activates my 'Aargh no, the net is not a us subsidiary, stop talking about zip-codes, we don't have 2-letter state codes (anyway I live in a county!) and most countries don't organise the US (or british) way, why is your form not international?' filter, which has a 'flame, abuse, rant' action set by default....
...but seriously, any really good reason? And I mean a reason for the forum time being local not global standard, and a reason for the forum time offset autodetect being wrong too?!
OK, the above looks like a rant, just read it constructively anyway and apply the late evening filter please :-)
TTFN & keep up the good (by that i mean amazing) work.
