I think . . . the board software does not take DST into account. We move our clocks up, but the board does not, so posts you make are in Standard time, not Daylight Savings. Now that we're an hour ahead, your posts will appear to be an hour behind.

By advancing your setting to GMT -4 (for Easterners), you're simulating a DST effect.

Is that an error in the code? Is that a setting that has been missed?

Fall back.

Click Profile, and set your time to GMT -5, assuming you're in Eastern.

Time to update your Profile setting. If you're Eastern, set your time to GMT -4

Does anyone actually bother to make the change? I know I don't.
