Daylight Savings Time Now in Effect
« on: March 09, 2008, 10:49:10 AM »
As you may be aware of, DST took effect last night. With this change, it is necessary to set your clock offset in your user profile in order to see the correct time on the board. To do this...

Go to Profile -> Modify Profile -> Look and Layout Preferences -> Time Offset

Change the time offset number so that the board time will equal your local time. If you're not sure, hit the "auto detect" link. Save the settings, and the board time should now display correctly. :)

Now you tell me! :D Just a question i've had for a while: How does the "automatically detect time" option work? Does it take the time from your computer?
