automatic DST change
Oct 28th, 2013 at 2:24am
 
Does it work on your systems? On my system, most boards change it automatically but others don't.

Radified is one of the others but I have "Enable automatic Daylight Savings Time change?" checked.

I have 1 hour added in "Time Offset" to adjust UTC to my time zone.

I came to think of a difference. On the others it says "Summer Time/DST is in effect" as opposed to "Enable
automatic
Daylight Savings Time change" on Radified. On the others, there's nothing that indicates "automatic" and I have to do the change myself but it should work on Radified, right?

This morning, I removed the check mark and time reverted to normal (non DST).

Wouldn't this be the same issue we discussed before?

http://radified.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1193612802/0#0

The US and Sweden don't switch to/from Daylight Savings at the same time, so the server time is going to appear to be an hour off during any part of the year in which your location and the server's location are out of sync.  The radified.com server is in the US, so when Sweden recently went off DST you're out of sync until the US also goes off DST (this coming weekend).

This happens twice a year for any location that goes on/off DST on different dates than most of the US.  BTW, that includes locations in the US that deviate from the norm, as well--such as Arizona and Hawaii, two states that never go on DST.

Dan, you're right that this is a "déjà vu" discussion. I'm actually getting worried about my memory, even more so since my father was diagnosed with Alzheimers but the doctors say that it is not hereditary.

Anyway, thanks for the comment and I'll reset the check mark to see what happens next week.

I thougt that there was a connection to the OS and the updates to "DST-rules" we get from Microsoft but obviously not.
