Time Setting on FHUG

Am I in a parallel universe?

Notice the times on the notifications and my own system time (Top Right)

Presumably the server clock is out of sync - not fallen back when coming off BST?

Click on your name, top right, go to your User Control Panel, then Board Preferences, and select My timezone. Mine is UTC +00.00, Europe/London.

As River Song would say.... "Spoilers..."

Yes, there aren't many boards that it happens on, but I always have to alter "My Timezone" to be UTC+0 or UTC+1. At least, I think I have to ... It's so much a matter of habit now that I don't remember for certain.

I leave my time zone setting alone and it seems to adjust Summer Time/Daylight Saving Hours automatically (I think).

You might well be right - that's why I said I thought I altered it - I can't swear that I did. Maybe it depends on all sorts of things... (So long as we don't blame the Systems Administrator, we'll be OK! ;) )

Thanks that solves the problem
Delay in reply due to forgetting to subscribe to this topic! (Not a sub-board that I automatically follow. More settings!)
