Default Daylight Saving Time bug in the Snitz forum?

Ever since we switched to Daylight Saving Time here (last Sunday), the time displayed at P2P.Wrox.Com is one hour off. It says the current time is 1:54:18 PM, while in fact it is 2:54:18 PM.

Is this a bug? Or is it because DST starts later in the US (first Sunday of April???)?

It's not a bug.

The DST routine uses the US start/end dates (first Sunday in April, last Sunday in October).

Expect it to adjust on April 4th this year.

Yeah, that's what I figured. It's because we Europeans are so stubborn as to start DST in the last weekend of March instead of the first weekend of April.... ;)
