How is the Timestamp on Forum Messages derived.
It seems to be 22 hours behind NZ Local time.
I would have thought being it would be NZST or at least UTC?

Check the timezone you've got configured in _your_ profile. Timestamps look fine to me.

Just updated PC clock from Internet too.

It picks up your timezone from your profile, not the time at-large. The time is based on the servers internal clock.
