    I want my times in PST!

    I live in Seattle, and all the last move times are in... London time maybe? It doesn't make that much of a difference, but is annoying. Is there any way for me to set my time zone to PST so the times are accurate?

    Thanks,

    My solution was to go out and purchase an inexpensive battery operated digital clock and set it to GMT or BST. I keep it by the computer and have a little label on it that says 'London'.

    Probably not the perfect answer, but it works for me.

    Changing that label to Nottingham would be more appropriate Marc! ;-)

    no, but honestly - this would be a step in the direction of "personalisation of the site" (th "my..." thing), no?

    I'll be honest with you - I'm simply amazed this doesn't get requested each and every day. But this is my prompt to get started on it.

    I will add a feature allowing you to set an offset from BST. You may need to adjust it a couple of times a year - but it will solve the problem for most.
