I think I've never at all bothered to change any time zones on my BBS,
as my BBS is on UTC.
There was a time, way back when, when Fido BBSes didn't run with
24/7 mailers. Fidonet instituted a Zone Mail hour that was the same
time across the zone - for me it was 1am to 2am. That's the last time I

We use UTC all the time at work when you have systems in different time
zones. Trying to compare log files in different time zones sprained my

We use UTC all the time at work when you have systems in different time zones. Trying to compare log files in different time zones sprained my mind, once.
I know I've struggled with that occasionally, as I'm frequently looking at a system in California while I'm in Germany. Though there it's more an issue with, "and this happened at 5:51a. And... it's currently 7:30a. Okay." while looking out the window and seeing that it was dusk.
But I think it makes sense, there, that it's local time, as operations with the system are almost entirely local, aside from people like me.
