Are we all on the same time, in terms of where we are? Just realised I wasn't and have corrected in User Control Panel.

This forum software makes no automatic adjustments for DST, so you have to remember to change it yourself in March and October.

The other answer is 'no' unless we are exactly in the same place. However the BST generalisation with DST works well enough.

Picky, picky! :mrgreen:




PS we don't have to be in exactly the same place, only on the same meridian ... ;)

Surely time is merely a convenient human concept (although somewhat connected to the Earth's rotation) and therefore if we're in the same time zone then we're at the same time despite being at a slightly different meridian.

UTC all year round. It's the only way to be sure. :)
