I think the PF clock is off by 27 minutes.

    but it appears that PF is not into Daylight Savings Time and has me listed in the Eastern time zone (correct) but -5 hours from GMT (not correct, but will be correct again in a couple of months). anyway my time stamps are off by 1 hour and 27 minutes (early). but i think that hour is because it thinks i'm 5 hours from GMT. accounting for that, it's off by 27 minutes. so the server clock needs to be set.

    just thought that CHROOT or Greg would like to be aware of that.

    when i hit Submit New Thread the time will be 17:00 GMT.

    well, a couple of days ago, PF was in some pretty serious thros. it doesn't surprize me that the resurrected PF might have had some systems not yet restarted.

    thanks. it seems that it knows about Daylight Savings Time, also. is that the case? what do you do about Europe (that has DST, but i think they switch over and back at different dates than U.S.) or the rest of the world, some of which do not have DST?

    when i hit Submit Reply its 17:59:00

    EDIT: looks like it's off by 2 miniutes. now it's 18:00 GMT

    according to my NTP synched PC, it's 21 minutes behind now.

    The current time is 0852 EDT (1252 UTC)

    Hmm.. it's really weird for a server to be losing time when it's actually running. I will keep looking into it.
