We just started Daylight saving Time . The servers may not yet be switched....or in your user profile you may not have set your area time setting...mine is Central Daylight time...we moved ahead from 2:00AM to 3:00AM and post times are showing up in CDT for me.

You are most welcome. I hope you find them useful.
