    The date/time on the board

    I noticed the little sentence that said that "All times are GMT +9." Now that the right time zone for me, but the times are a hour ahead. Anyone else have there times wrong? I'm thinking that daylight savings time might have something to do with it.

    I'm in the GMT time zone and the time is correct for me, your guess about daylight saving is probably right but you would have thought someone would have taken that into account

    Does GMT use daylight savings?

    I remember reading that the "correct" term has been changed from GMT to UTC (UT something at least).

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Here, it says GMT+1, and the clock shows the right time for me, however, in Denmark we are on summer time, so actually I should currently be GMT+2.

    GMT/UMT does not change with daylight savings.
