Looks like we are about an hour behind or have you changed from EDT to CDT?
Well at least you got the day and date right? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

The board doesn't automatically correct for DST. There should be a note that says "All times are UTC - 5 hours [ DST ]" a little bit under the "It is currently..."

If you don't see the [ DST ] then go to "User Control Panel" (top right) and choose "board preferences'. Then click Yes on " Summer Time / DST is in effect".

FWIW, I've deliberately set the board to stay on UTC for me. Makes calculating the effect of tides easier, or something like that. :lol:
