On Sunday, Microsoft, in their infinte wisdom, decreed that Perth now has daylight savings. Now, Perth having finally seen sense, booted DLS out this year and we're now three hours behind AEST . . . but AT is telling me that it's now 15:07 when really it's 14:07. It's also getting the time I was on last wrong - I was on this morning and closed out at 05:44 but it's saying 06:44.

Is there a way to fix this, Solandia?

Hi thorhammer,

Have you tried changing your time zone settings in 'Edit Options' in your profile? You might have to have a mess around to get it right but then at least you'd have the right time and times you visit here.

Yep, that just makes things worse - then the time above says two hours earlier than it should and the time below still says one hour later. :S

I think it's a MS bug that might have to be ironed out with the forum software or server.

Yeah, I know :mad: I tried GMT +9, which is screwy, and GMT +7 but that's no better. Oh well, just have to deal with it!

Hi thorhammer, on the Edit Options (http://www.tarotforum.net/profile.php?do=editoptions) page, under the time zone field, there is a DST correction option. Set that to 'DST Corrections Always Off' and that should give you the right WA time.

Thanks, Solandia, I'll try it when I get home. Things on this work computer seem to work differently :)
