    Hi,

    I've noticed that the time given by RHP is an hour behind GMT even though it professes to be GMT. Is this bacause of day-light savings? Ans if so what should I do to sort it out?

    Click on 'My Home' go to the bottom left hand corner and change your time zone setting to -1 or +1 as appropriate. 🙂

    Its not that. I live in GMT, in england, yet it is an hour slow. I could change it in my home I'm just curious as to why its an hour slow

    The server is in GMT.

    In 1968 to 1971 Britain tried the experiment of keeping BST - to be called British Standard Time - throughout the year, largely for commercial reasons because Britain would then conform to the time kept by other European Countries. This was not good for the school children of Scotland as it meant they had to always go to School in the dark. The experiment was eventually abandoned in 1972, Britain has kept GMT in winter and BST in summer.
