Clients that had been open reported 23 hours, new clients after time change reported 1 day. This confused people. UTC is wide spread, certainly on the website. It seems, however, that the client is using localtime or some other code that doesn't understand daylight saving.

Suggest you do all calculations in UTC. Priority 5, but I'll bump it in the spring. Let's see if you can fix it before Daylight Saving comes back.

I didn't notice any problems during this time change, although the diversity of time zones in client and web site is a problem. Closing until it shows up again.
