    Time Gentlemen Please!

    Have you thought about sorting the clock out on this website, it always seems to be an hour behind!

    Hello Roy. I refer you to Roger's succinct explanation from another thread:

    I still can't understand that one... we are in the GMT zone after all, not the GMT+1 zone.

    I think the server hasn't adjusted itself for BST.

    Isn't the server in Germany though? I remember when the site was down once, the message it displayed was in German.

    Might have something to do with the difference but not the GMT+1 business!!!

    Personally I think the clock should be kept to GMT as not everybody on the site resides in the UK, so switching to BST at appropriate times seems a bit parochial.

    this means more ttime in bed and in the pub but late for work and we can blame it on tMP!!

    I didn't know there was any clock on the site.
    Shows how much attention I pay!!!!

    The problem here folks is, I believe, down to the fact that whilst the tMP Master Clock is set at GMT, the actual server/machine where all tMP threads are located is in Germany which is +1h... but if I set tMP Master Clock at GMT-1, all other times would be out.

    Easiest way is as described, simply set your profile time to GMT-1 and all should be OK...
