Thread: Time offset

  1. #1

    Time offset

    I had to set my time offset to -3 GMT, Buenos Aires, for the time to be correct. Does anybody else have this problem?

    Deke, that was the solution. Set the time offset to -3 and you get PDT.

    I just wondered if it was unique to me.

    I think the problem is the forum software`s general location setting is off.

    It is probably setup at the default time zone (GMT +/-0) and the https://perb.cc server appears to be in Toronto. That`s why we in the Pacific time zone have to setup our location as GMT -3 hours to be 3 hours back...

    If it was setup right, we`d be GMT-8 hours for the Pacific time zone. It`s easy to fix, but a board admin has to change it.

    Yeah... me too. I posted that last one at about 1:36:30pm, but server says I posted at 1:28pm. The computer on my PC is sync'd to a world time server, so I'm pretty sure my time is acurate.

    To fix it, the time on the server this board is served from needs to be corrected. Then, the the forum software on that server needs to be adjusted to reflect it's current time zone. After that, we all just have to pick our actuall TZ and we're golden!

    Many people don't realize how important the correct time on a server is...
