time stamp has no point of reference

Travel Forums System Talk time stamp has no point of reference

I can't remember if I have mentioned this before. From one of my recent posts: "Edited at Nov 1, 2006 1:02 AM by pfeiffer"

It is certainly not 1:00 AM here. Should that be my local time? Most systems I know either give all time references in the user's local time or else GMT. At the very least, the time stamp should maybe identify its time zone? It is about 21 hours west of here.

(Apologies if I have already asked about this.)

Heh, it is the server in California's time. Fixing up the times to be more user-friendly is on the to-do list.

Oops, you're right (not that I expected otherwise): nine hours west of here. How in the world did I arrive at "21"? Perhaps the "1:00 AM" was a reflection of my internal time, i.e., asleep at the wheel.
