world time is wrong

I believe with the time change a couple weeks ago, it wasn't updated. The world times need to be rolled forward one. It currently says it's 7:06, but it's actually 8:06.

well, here on the east coast we do it, and it says that it's 8:10 right now. It's not, it's 9:10. So, nope, it's not right. Maybe it's right on some places, but not on all of them. I'm pretty sure the majority of the world does change their clocks though.

the time is right on both machines, so if its a problem its probably because you have your timezone set wrong in your user preferences..


"Today approximately 70 countries utilize Daylight Saving Time in at least a portion of the country. The only major industrialized country not to have introduced daylight saving is Japan."

70 countries != most of the world, when theres ~193 countries.

Ok, so, the majority of industrialized countries (in other words, major ones) do use daylight savings time. And that's stil not the point. The point is, it currently says it's 8:40 here, when in fact, it's 9:40. I don't think my preferences on here have anything to do with the clocks in my house. They all say it's 9:40, but the world time feature here on PBN says it's 8:40. That means it's off an hour. That's all I'm trying to say. Click on "world time" over on the left hand side, and hopefully you'll see what I'm talking about.
