I've noticed that the time for the site is wrong...My settings are all right for it, but the time says 2:31PM, when it's 5:40PM...

I've seen it in an other thread too. It's the server's time is wrong somehow.

I really don't pay attention to it. It says its 7am, when its really 5pm here... I just go by "4hrs ago..." etc...

Common problem with servers. The "local" time gets set in the clock, instead of UTC, and THEN a timezone offset gets applied. So the time ends up being offset twice

Then the minutes would be correct which they aren't.

NTP = Network Time Protocol. (it syncs the clock)

Umm...if you are typing on a computer...you probably will have the time right on the screen :) I know...pretty outlandish, but, it is true! I promise.

So why do you need the forum to tell you the time?

Not all Timezones change by 60 minutes.... For example St. John's in Newfoundland only has a 30 minute difference.
I know, the minutes are off by 12 minutes
