Time zone issue

Hi... I'm currently on +10 GMT (Melbourne, Australia DST), but that's now giving me a Local Time an hour later than it really is here, and changing to +9 puts it an hour earlier than the real time. We're still on Daylight Savings time, and I think the USA just changed to DST, so maybe that's confused the settings?

(I tried +11 too, that gives me the same Local Time as +10 does.)

I changed mine back to +9 and it's fine for me. I seem to have to do this every year when Daylight Savings changes in the states.

does it get fixed if you change it back to +10 but turn the dst setting to off? i think i remember this happening every year for those months where dst is going in both parts of the world, but i can't remember if there's a fix other than changing individual settings.

i'm glad i have my time still set to us time (mainly so i can always remember what time it is for my mom), but i run into this problem on other forums too, where i have it set to nz's time zone.

i should also mention it doesn't even work right for me, even though i have my time zone set to central. if i leave it to automatically detect dst settings, nothing happens. i have to manually turn it on and off. i forgot about that until i noticed the time didn't change for me on here.

I think I'd forgotten that this happens every year, oops!

I left it on +10 over night (with "Auto detect DST" on) and now it's showing the right time - I think maybe it was just a temporary thing when the US and Aus were on different days, now the date line has caught us up and everything's good.

Sorry!
