DST change over will be happening mid-trade faire for a lot of us so don't forget to change your board settings and figure your times out accordingly so you don't miss anything!

*More technical how to stuff*

Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends again for most North Americans this weekend, at 2 AM on Sunday, November 5th, as the clocks go back an hour. When that happens, just change the "Summer Time/DST is in effect:" choice to "No", here in your Control Panel > Board Preferences. Don't switch your timezone on that page!

Other time zones (see the link below), like the UK, switched last weekend, or earlier this month. The upside down people who do it the other way, and ended DST around the beginning of October, should have set it to "No" when it changed for them.

You can verify it by checking the "It is currently ..." time on the main index page. All of the calendar stuff and other times will adjust accordingly, but recurring/future events need to be checked to see if you set them to account for the change.
I hate DST! :glaskugel:

If you want to change the "Timezone:" in your Control Panel > Profile, remember that it only for information purposes, and doesn't do anything. Set it it "Moon" or "Tardis" time if you want, or anything else. The forums don't use it for any time calculations. It is only extra profile/avatar info.
