Bad Timing!

Post by rexx » Tue Jun 03, 2008 1:53 pm

The timezone feature, on my board, appears to be off, by 1 hour.

The "System Timezone" is set, at: "GMT - 5 hours" - which is supposed to be the setting, for North America's Eastern Standard Time, but this does not seem to be the case.

For example, while my clocks, this morning, said the time was 9:30 am, my board said it was 8:30 am.

I know this is not a big deal, but should I use "GMT - 6 hours" instead - despite such appears to be the wrong clock setting?

Or did I get it wrong?

Yes. GMT-5 is Eastern Standard time.
Eastern Daylight Saving Time is GMT-4

Maybe forcing the DST to be in action?
