George,
The Genii server is set for East Coast time, which is why you're seeing the difference. You can edit your time zone offset under "My Preferences", so that it will show the correct time for you.

But Jim, I understand the differance 9:00 PM 12:00 AM Eastern Time zone however, look at the time stamp on this message; it should reflect about 8:17 PM but I'll bet it reads 11:17 PM.

It's a little thing, but this kind of wexposure and trashing the system has got to stop. I am typing this at (now) 5:19 PM Pacific Coast time...

George,
It displays correctly for me (it shows your post at 8:18, with the edit at 8:19 pm, my time -- which is EST).

I think I see the source of your problem, though. Your preferences were set for a three hour difference, when it should be a negative three hour difference. I've made the modification to your preferences, so things should be appearing correctly for you now.

Let me know if you have any more troubles with this.
