    Mines a few minutes a head, however I have seen it in hours out of sync to which I've just put down to time zones.

    I can understand hours being out due to time zones, but afaik, all timezones are only different by hours, or possible 30mins. not two or three. :confused:

    The clock at the bottom doesnt bother me, but its affecting all the times for the posts in the forums.

    Just when I am half asleep it confuses the crap out of me, when I look at my clock and see that the post has happened in the future :roll:
