Incorrect time on the board
« on: February 01, 2017, 07:04:19 PM »
It seems that the board time is many hours faster than my current time. Is it my computer or a board error?
 Thanks, Bob

I would think it is set as just one time zone Bob as you have several in your country alone. It could be set by the standard 'Greenwich Mean Time'?.

Bob, if you select look and layout from the dropdown under profile at the top of the home page, the second option allows you to auto-detect your time zone. I an EST, and it shows a -5 hour offset from forum. I recently needed to do this .

World clock shows that time to be in the time zone of London and Lisbon. Here is the world clock to show time zones.  Bill

Don't think winter time / summer time will be done automagically. So you need to adjust that twice a year...

Thanks to all of you. I never had to adjust it before. It was strange that it was showing so many hours off.

I noticed last week that mine was off, too.  But it was +5 hours PST, which is not enough to be GMT; its more like some time zone over the Atlantic somewhere.
