Ah, you've reminded me there was some issue with UTC and what time zone you are in. I think it works for me because GMT is the same as UTC, but I can't remember exactly.

Yes, that would be convenient, if I lived in your time zone. Too bad there isn't a US central time is universal key to use.

Have you looked at the 2 references above? The suggestion there is that it should work regardless of where you are - which would make logical sense!

I have no desire to have Windows run on UTC, so I need to find a way to prevent Kubuntu from throwing a monkey wrench into the works.
