    Is the time off for everyone?

    I'm guessing the software isn't corrected for the new date change for DST. I'm an hour early on my post. I guess that gives me plenty of time to re-read and correct any problems before anyone notices, huh? Just wondered. Jim.

    Nope, it's showing the correct time for me.

    What's the new date change you mentioned? All the references I've seen say it's November 2 this year.

    That is correct, but last year was the first year at the new schedule. I just thought maybe the software hadn't caught up with it yet. I did look at my profile before I posted the note, and it shows central time, DST on. I'll check this post and see what it says. Jim.

    Still an hour early. Did they change my time zone and I missed it? Jim.

    OOPS!!! My clock in this room is an hour off!! The clock on my computer is right. HMMMM when did that happen? I'll just blame it on the heat in the attic hooking up the ceiling fan power feed line.
    Carry on. Jim.

    I just looked...my computer clock is the one that is wrong. The room clock is right. Something tells me the time I see on the post is controlled by my computer's clock. I'm going to change it and see what happens. Frank, I think I'm the one that's getting old! Jim.

    Nope, forum post time is still an hour early. I'm so confused.....

    I just looked at your profile, and you have Automatically detect DST settings set to "Yes", but the Is DST currently in effect option is set to "No". I think if you set the latter one to "Yes", things will display correctly for you.

    Vaughn, I see the automatic detect, but I don't see the DST currently in effect option. Is it under a different section? Thanks!!

    Norman, your post shows it was made 1 hour earlier than you said it was. So this is still showing I'm off. Jim.
