It does not look like there is an option to select whether Daylight Savings Time is or is not in effect. Should we automatically compensate for it by changing our time zone? (i.e. I get the forum to display the right times for me by having it set in GMT-4 instead of GMT-5)

Those of us who live in half-hour timezones will be unable to do that. (I can't select GMT -2.5, because it isn't an option.)

On the other hand, the forum clock is not my primary method of telling time, so it's no big deal to me either way. ;)

There are half-hour timezones? How confusing.

Yup, there certainly are. Where Anna cat is, in Newfoundland, it's a half hour ahead of Atlantic Time. So, on the radio, you always hear 8 o'clock, 8:30 in Newfoundland. Also, in Australia, in Adelaide, they are at a half hour difference from Melbourne time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_clock World clock for you. :) Makes it difficult to calculate time differences with the half hour, at times. :)

They also have half-hour time zones in certain parts of India and Nepal, in addition to 15-minute timezones there I think.
