    ... for at least GMT -0500 Eastern (USA & Canada) Bogota & Lima, anyway.

    I have "Automatically detect DST settings" checked, but the board still registers 6 hours behind GMT (DST ended last night), my TiVo, cableco DVR, Mac & all my PC's automatically altered their clocks last night, a phpbb board which I am a member of has their clocks set correctly according to my profile.

    BTW isn't it next year that the US is adjusting their DST observance to be inline with Europe?

    Hi...

    You just need to go into the USER CP options area and save again. It alas is a bug in the code.

    OK. trying now. That did it.

    Unless there is an update to the code, it's a waste of time having the option to change the timestamp to recognize daylight savings time if you have to go to the control panel anyway :)

    I saved my options but the time on this post is still two hours ahead of Central time (its 9:39AM here in Dallas).

    Sorry, not sure what to say. All seems right on this end of things. I show you made that post at 10:39AM ET.

    I think I got it fixed. For some reason I had Eastern time selected rather than Central. :eek:
