My time appears OK. IOW, it says "The time now is 11:22 PM and it is 11:22 PM.
However, the clock doesn't take into account Standard time vs Daylight savings time. For instance, I live in the Eastern time zone, which is "GMT - 5" in Winter, but "GMT - 4" in Summer. Yet, BikeForums doesn't seem to take that factor into consideration.
The fact the time appears to be OK means that the server's time information is skewed somewhat: when it:s 11:22 PM EDT here, it's really 3:22 AM GMT, and not 4:22 GMT.

I would say that there probably isn't any real problem for most people in North America, as I suspect the proper time will follow when we revert to Standard time. However, people in Saskatchewan and in the few U.S. states that don't use daylight savings time will probably have to readjust their bike forums profile at some point. And people in the Southern hemisphere might have a strange situation if they use Daylight time between October and April (if that's the case).
