Clock synchronization

    Talking about relativity, time dilation and clock synchronization.
    What time of reference does PF Forum use?
    If you see a thread being answered at: "Today 10:00 am"
    Is it 10:00 am on PF server or 10:00 am on your computer?

    If you go to My PF --> Preferences, you will see that under section Locale, you can set your time zone. So the time you see on PF is your locale time but on PF server.
