Sorry, but the server's time clock got corrupted for a short time yesterday and some posting were stamped as being entered on January 5th. The error has been repaired. I am sorry for any inconvenience.

Yep, it seems that the forum software was written before they changed the date for the start and end of daylight savings time. Oh well.

I wonder if it's a time-zone specific problem?

For example, I'm set to Pacific Time (-8) right now. The WOP timestamp says 10:45am, even though it's really 9:45am.

Now, in the past, I've changed my time to Alaskan Time (-9). However, the next time I've logged on, it's been an hour BEHIND. For example, if I set my time to Alaska and log on tomorrow at 10:00am, the WOP timestamp will say 9:00am.

It seems impossible for me to get a correct timestamp. Alaskan Time is an hour behind of real-world time, Pacific Time is an hour ahead.

Anyone else have this issue?

I tried switching to -9 to correct the time and I had the same result.
