Something wrong with PF clock?

  1. Oct 12, 2006 #1
    I just noticed, the PF clock is nearly 4 hours behind my local time. Is there something wrong with the PF clock or am I the only one facing this problem?

    Yes, you're right. My profile is set to EST (-5 hours) but PF reports 4 hours behind EST.

    9:14pm MST, 5:34PM PF time....

    This has been going on for over a month now. I know it's not that big a deal, but it seems like a pretty simple thing to fix. What's going on?

    The clock seems to have acquired a mind of its own and keeps drifting. It was only an hour off for a while, and suddenly jumped to 4 hours off. It means you're supposed to hang around 4 hours longer. :biggrin:

    Well the clock seems to be showing the correct time now. :biggrin:
