What time zone are we in?

    I noptice when browsing the AFB forum that the time listed for posts is two hours ahead of where I live (Central time). Or one hour ahead of ET. Is this on purpose? Or did TMO fail to set its clocks back an hour last week?

    If you are logged in while browsing, the forums go off the timezone that you have in your user profile.  If you click the profile link, you will find a timezone dropdown.  Central time is GMT - 6 hours.

    Also, phpBB does not understand daylight saving time all that well.  I had my profile set to GMT-4 (EDT) and now need to change it to GMT-5 (EST).  Unfortunately, this action generally needs to be repeated at the beginning and end of every daylight saving time season.  So during daylight saving time, you will need to change to GMT-5.

    Hope that helps.
