Not trying to be a nit picker, but the forum time stamp needs to be set back to Standard Time. I was getting confused at seeing our posts an hour in the future...lol.

thanks

I can't read this, because according to my watch you haven't posted it yet.

Maybe the time zone in your profile needs a look? Hope this is not a bug in vBulletin although it appears to have tracked the MDT/MST change correctly for me.

FYI: the time on Apollo is synched to two other computers here via NTP which are in turn synched to stratum-1 servers

Location: National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colorado
Geographic Coordinates: 39:58:43.44N 254:43:32.5E +1840m (WGS 84)
Synchronization: ACTS dial-up with NTP backup, DEC Alpha UNIX Service Area: NSFnet, WESTnet

Location: Falcon AFB, Colorado
Geographic Coordinates: 104 31 30 W, 38 48 30 N WGS84
Synchronization: NTP V3 primary (USNO Alternate Master Clock H-maser) HP9000/747i

This is more or less standard practice. The computer clock effectively runs in GMT and the OS software reporting the time to the forum software (vBulletin) is aware of what time zone it is in and local standard/daylight savings rules, pretty much like a PC.
