All you have to do is remember to call those East Coast businesses early in the day. Desert landscape does eliminate mowing but raking all that gravel can be a bit tiring....and no matter how much water you put on it the damn stuff just will not grow!:D

If you are not logged in, the system will show you the time for the default time zone, which is GMT 5, Eastern Time. Won't change to your correct time unless it knows it's you

I understand it's GMT based however AZ is GMT 7 (Mountain Time) when DST is not in effect. When DST is in effect AZ is GMT 8. At this moment it is 4:07pm in AZ and 6:07 Eastern time. However, when I look at the times posted in threads before I log in they indicate the postings took place 3 hours later than AZ....not 2.

I think Daylight settings were stuck in the system itself. Gave it a kick. How does it look
OK, that reduced the time from 3 to 2 hours when NOT logged on. Thank you!

I have a technical question for you. I know the time and date are built around GMT/UTC. However, when I am not logged on I assume the system uses a "reference" location.....perhaps the server. If the server is actually in the Austin area or anywhere in the US for that matter then why do I not see a time stamp even greater than the 3 hours I was seeing before your "kick in the pants" correction? Does the system also take into consideration the time zone of the poster, for example Mountain time during DST, then subtract /add that difference to the split between the server and GMT?
