Did you opt for "Automatically detect DST selections" when you set your time zone?

Using "UseCP" and then the settings tab can you not enter your time zone (about half way down the page) and/or adjust it to be correct in your postings?

In the Mountain Time Zone (GMT -7:00) it showed as "Today 02:12 PM." (I have DST set to "automatically detect.")

You may want to check your computer clock. Mine reset to DST today (I had to manually set it back one hour), even though we went on DST several weeks ago (I had to set it forward manually then). I guess there is an algorithm in the bios programmed to the old change date, which used to be the first Sunday in April.

Depending on old (or new) your computer is there usually is a BIOS setting (F12 on boot up usually) that can set DST to start and end correctly and automatically. You may have to update your BIOS also.

Also, if you are running Vista you can doubl click on the time in your "tray" and it should bring up the windows time setting applet where you can change the timezone and/or clock time.

For some magic reason my Magellan GPS wanted to reset to EST when I turned it on Apr 1. Since it was already on correct time just pushed the no button.

Maybe the pols should do a way with time changes. With all the clocks around the house I can waste an hour re setting them.
