    I just noticed that RHP thinks its "Your current time Jun 08 2010 16:24", although im pretty confident its 17:24.
    Im from Holland, Time Zone: GMT + 1, which is the setting I have.

    Question: Why is RHP's GMT time 1 hour more early then what the rest of the world uses?

    because we're in bst (british summer time), which is +1 to gmt.

    what's wrong zoro? you're usually the one solving the questions in here not asking them .. too many hits to the head maybe ... and i'm not talking about actual physical hits

    I thought Holland was on Central European Summer Time, GMT +2, at the moment. Perhaps you should alter your time zone settings.

    "My settings" -> "My Time Zone" and set the timezone so the RHP clock shows correct.

    I dunno, I just thought it was wierd the time was incorrect all of a sudden.
    "too many hits to the head maybe " probably:p


    So then should I change it back to +1 in the winter or what?

    yeah, it always stays at gmt but in the summer when we move forward an hour we have to change our settings to combat this an then change it back when we go back an hour in winter. how long have you been on this site?

    Some places in the world do not change their time at all. Those that do change it don't all do so on the same dates. It would end up being a lot of variables to try and write code for.

    The current system is simple to use as all you have to do is manually change the time setting to suit yourself.

    Understood.
