Today in Windows 8 Consumer Preview I hit upon a little oddity… which lead me in to a timezone oddyssey.

 

My clock shows the right time…  at least I think it does.  Currently 11:27.  And, my timezone says :

timezone1

That all seems good, but, Metrotwit, and Microsoft Office Communicator both complain.  Metrotwit says it can’t automatically adjust my timeline, check my clock and timezone.   Tweets that I did were coming in 5 hours earlier than the real time where I was doing the tweeting.  Office Communicator won’t even get as far as trying to sign in, with a message along similar lines.

 

So I changed my timezone, to straightforward UTC.  This then changed my time to 17:27, so I had to then back my clock to 11:27.

 

Now all is good:

timezone2
