Time zone / GMT

Your profile allows you to set your time zone, so times shown make sense.

In you live in the US use this web site to find your time zone. Other countries use this one.

Note to those in the US - don't forget to change your time zone when daylight savings time starts and ends.

A quick and easy way to know what GMT you are is to open your time in the system tray on windows (if your using windows) No searching list and wondering. After you double click it go to the timezone page and make sure your set to the right time zone. In win 98, 2000, me and nt4. it will show you something like this:

(GMT -06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)

I believe that winxp does the same thing. If you are on one of the non windows systems ( I love yah *nux OS's). Then you better look at the sites above, since those systems have too many ways to find time and I don't want to make this into a page.

heres a quick list for the USA:

(GMT -10:00) Hawii
(GMT -09:00) Alaska
(GMT -08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)
(GMT -07:00) Mountain Time (US & Canada)
(GMT -06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)
(GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Daylight Savings time is +1 to the above.

Had to fix Searchers she was showing her posts to be about 12 hours after she posted . . . hehe
