So "slash" time is now the central timezone, what with CRZ being Minnesota based, correct?

If so why didn't the "slash" clock, which I like by the way, "fall back"?

It's showing Eastern time for me, so I just assumed that the clock was actually set to your own timezone settings.

It looks like the time from your PC to be exact. Double click on the time in the lower-right corner and compare!

Odd. I swear this was working correctly before. It looks like it isn't checking for Daylight's savings (or the end of it - or whatever).

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

We always had problems with this around the time changes. I think Java's idea of UTC doesn't jive right or something or other.

It's SUPPOSED to be Central (Standard) Time, yes.

Also, I forgot to make my semiannual "time change" notice so instead I'll just remind you that you can always change your timezone manually at if it happens that the time in the upper right corner box is hours away from your own time (ie, you never changed it and it still is set to Pacific, or Central if you registered in October) - there are also many other find things you can change at the Edit Profile page

CRZ: I've noticed that you have started clarifying your reasons for banning certain threads. Mostly the people that have threads banned don't understand and probably never would without some blatant explanation. Maybe this will increase their wisdom......
