System Time


Hi Ivar:
Lovely forum, and well kept, many thanks.

But .... from where on this planet does this system time come from?
I see a system time that is around 9 hours off from my own.
My own timezone setting in the profile is OK, so where does it all go so wrong?

Thanks for your compliments Claus.

Good point regarding the time. The server used for this site is actually localted in Canada, (found a good deal there so why not) and once the board was installed I guess it defaulted to the server-time. I have to admit I have not looked at it until now, and I have corrected the time.

I have to set the board time by selectiong GMT + x . According to this site:

...Spain in the summer is GMT + 2 (CET).

This is what I have changed it to now. Please correct me if I am wrong..

As you point out, if you live in a different timezone, you can set your local time in your profile (click the Profile button towards the top).

Thanks for catching this Claus, I guess the time has been a bit off for a while. :oops:
