Don't know where the server is (what ever that is) but there is 6 hrs difference, between Chicago (U.S. Central Time Zone), and London, and B-Ham, U.K.  Me Mum was from Sutton coldfield in Warwickshire, by B-Ham. I am a war baby. Getting old now. I live north of Chicago in S.E. Wisconsin, in Burlington. I am retireing on 2 July 09. My wife wants to travel Europe before we are to old.
I spent time in the U.S. Navy  in Kent and Suffolk from 63-66. I use to visit my last ancestor  in Suttoncoldfeild wilst I was there.

I believe the server is Bedford, Texas.  That is the U.S. Central time zone (same time as Rebel Dave).  I’m in the Pacific time zone (which is two hours earlier than Central).  I notice both of your profiles show times in the Central zone as your local time, whereas mine shows local time as my real time.
It looks like the server is converting Angel Eyes local time to the servers local time.
Are we confused yet?   ??? ??? ::) ::) ;D ;D

Server time is US central time.

In your Look and Layout Preferences in your profile, you have the option of setting a Time Offset (Number of hours to +/- to make displayed time equal to your local time).
