Default Re: clock

its in the wrong timezone. It does not actually keep time persay, you cant just set it to a time, then think it will keep the time.

when its set to a certain time zone it follows that time. double click the clock, click the timezone tab, and select your time zone. IE: im in GMT -5:00 Eastern Time US and Canada because i live on the east coast of the united states.

Karma/rep is always appreciated
