Knowtice?   Cheesy

It's a phpbb thing.  I don't know why, but I've noticed it on other forums too.  I just set my timezone to be an hour later so that it works for me.

DST messes everything up. I think it depends whether the board supports DST, whether it knows when DST is, and whether your locale uses DST.

I don't believe it knows.  Now that I think about it, I do have to change for it.

Yeah, I don't know what happened, maybe it was a recent update in PHPBB, but that USED to be correct ( i think....), but now it doesn't compensate for it anymore...

DST, yeah, I thought of that.... I never can see it's use, what's the point exactly? Plus I hear some countries/states don't do it, or something like that.. Making it more of a mess.. @_@.. I might be wrong on that last bit though..

Doesn't the server clock influence phpBB? Like if it goes up and hour, and so on... ?

DST was created by farmers for farmers. It truly is worthless now.

That's a bunch of crap >_<;;  If they don't want to walk home from school or walk to school in the dark they can not go to school.

DST has it uses here, without it, the sun would be up at useless times. With it, we get an extra hour of daylight where we can actually use it.

But I guess if you live in places where the daylength doesnt very that much throughout the year, its kinda pointless to have it.

Like I said, it was created mainly for farmers and the like because they relied on sunlight so they could work longer.

Now, in the US anyway, it's really not needed. It creates more confusion than anything really.

The whole time zone thing needs a change. It needs to be broken up into equal slices, not the garbage we have now..
