Daylight Savings

#1 Post by Lartarin » Sun Apr 06, 2003 4:31 pm

Since this forum doesn't have a way to adjust for Daylight Savings, you will need to go into your "Profile" and scroll down towards the bottom. There is a spot for the timezone. All you'll need to do is change it to GMT -5 in the spring and back to GMT -6 in the fall. That is the current work around to show the correct time.


***Edit: This is no longer needs to be done. Just check "Summer Time/DST is in effect" in your User Control Panel.***

I'd love to see an MST3000 version of that.

"We've known each other for so long...never gonna give you up."

What does this have to do with changing my time?

I just go where I'm told. Hell is a frequent location.

I've noticed some folks haven't updated their times......

Now here is a link to a funny cartoon.

Just an update on Daylight Savings. You shouldn't need to change this anymore. In your "User Control Panel" go into "Board preferences" and set your timezone to UTC-6 Central and make sure "Summer Time/DST is in effect:" is checked as "Yes".

Nice try, but I still had to manually change it back to DST in in effect "no" ...it seems everyone else is still off an hour as well.

Here is a funny cartoon about time, and timelines.
