So, over the years, I've tried a few times to change my profile settings to match the actual timezone I live in (Eastern). I tried once more this morning, with no luck. I set it to Eastern, but it said that the current GMT time was 2:54 pm... but it was actually 10:54 am in New York. Meanwhile, the Eastern time on my Control Panel said it was 5:00.
Does anyone out there have a correct time setup on their profile? For some reason, I feel weird setting my profile to a different timezone than my actual timezone, just to have an accurate timestamp on the posts. Boy, I wonder why this annoys me.

I have eastern time on here and it's one hour behind.

Same with mine, but in the settings, it's all fucked.

new york is 5 hours behind GMT. on the CP where you choose your time zone this is indicated where it says "GMT - 5:00". the question is, when you set it for "eastern time", do the correct time stamps appear on your posts?

incidentally, i think it corrects for daylight saving time automatically.

oh i'm wrong about the daylight saving time. that post is an hour behind my actual time. i guess i could correct it by changing my time zone, but i don't care that much.
