Click on "Profile" at the menu at the top of this page.
Then choose "Modify Profile" from the menu below that on the left.
Then choose "Look and Layout"
Then choose the time off-set or click on auto-detect.  Time off-set is your time zone's difference from Zulu time. Keep adjusting until it looks correct for you.

The weird thing is that when I have offset as 0 it tells me that current Forum time is 11:00, not 12:00, which would be UTC. Are the servers of NSF on the Azores or am I missing something there?

Current forum time is -1 UTC. Nothing to do with the servers as they are in Dallas, which is -6 UTC.

I don't know why the forum time is set that way! I blame the Dutch! ;D (Mark and Jester are Dutch :) )

Don't look at me, I would have set it to CET and move the server to the right side of the road ;-)

Twice a year, right after daylight savings time starts/ends in the US, the time offset is suddenly 2 hours wrong for me. Does anyone else have that problem? It's been happening for years. (Clicking auto detect fixes the problem.)

Yes, I have that issue, too.   And like you, clicking "auto detect" fixed the issue.

Test complete, Auto detect is working nicely in the EDT zone GMT-4.
