I have a system running on Win Server2003 and SqlServer 2008.
Machine is set to GMT-6 for its timezone i.e Central Time with
Daylight Savings enabled.
When I add records, the time shown in the fields is shown in UTC - as
its the current time +5 hours. The times stored in the DB are as
entered (I checked in SQL) in UTC. When the records are retrieved then
get another 5 hours added to them, as if they were stored in local
The environment.rb file shows:
config.time_zone = 'UTC'
I dont care if the records are stored in UTC or not, but this wacked
out date handling is killing the users as its so confusing. Any ideas/
Many thanks in advance
