I live in California, and the time zone in my user control panel (http://www.bikeforums.net/profile.php?do=editoptions) is set to "(GMT -8:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)" with "DST corrections always on". But when I go to View New Posts (http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php?do=getnew), the newest message was posted exactly one hour in the future.
I first noticed a problem when a message I posted a little over an hour ago had a timestamp of just a few minutes ago.

Try switching to 'Automatically detect DST settings'.
That should correct the problem.

Yes, it did, thanks. My mental model of that setting was all wrong. I thought the "Automatically detect DST settings" was the same as or would somehow detect whether I had the "automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes" checkbox checked in Windows XP.

Glad to see that you got it working properly again. When I went to look at the settings I realised I'd done the same as you, but last year.
