    daylight savings time

    are timestamps supposed to reflect daylight savings time here since they are, or have been, showing local time? an edit i just made is timestamped 1 hour earlier.

    Re: daylight savings time

    Depends on how the system is configured. On servers I set the clock to UTC so Daylight Savings is never an issue. My desktops are typically on local time, but they switched over to DST last weekend without my intervention.
