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).

All times are GMT +1 hour. The time now is 09:42 AM.

That's right here. Maybe it's about daylight savings, did you
have a change recently ? I remember the US changing to summer time one week later then europe...

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.

We switched to daylight savings 4 days ago... the clock here is right for me.

Well I'm stationed in Okinawa Japan and they don't use daylight savings time.
