Daylight Savings....

umm...im not really sure who this is directed at, but...

right now, all of the clocks on my computer say "the time is now 7:22," though its really 8:22. maybe i didnt program my computer to adjust for the daylight savings time, but if i didnt then how do i do that? and if its not just my computer, then can someone fix that?

thanx guys

if you have windows... double click the clock on your taskbar, click the "time zone" tab and at the bottom there's a box you need to check that has "automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes"

Mine isn't fixed.

I picked "GMT" because I wanted the times to appear in UTC (I listen to shortwave radio so I use UTC a lot). When Daylight Savings Time began last Sunday and I went from UTC -5 to UTC -4, the time here went from UTC to UTC +1. Any chance it can remain at UTC (or any chance the board can be modified to allow for Daylight Savings or a lack of it? )
