Since installing an RSS reader 3 days ago, I've noticed that the Dates and Times that a thread was created appear incorrectly in my RSS reader, but only for SOME forums.  Others appear correctly, for example:

Zinio Reader Enters NZ Digital Publication Market

Yesterday, 10 October 2006, 12:33:00

This was from the GZ MAIN feed and appears correctly.


Suggestion as to how Vodafone could increase its uptake of Mobile Broadband

Thursday, 12 October 2006, 05:41:00

I just created this thread about 20 minutes ago, and the correct time (as reported by GZ's home page is 16:41.

It appears as though some of the RSS feeds are reporting the time 11 hours behind what it should be.  This has been consistently happening on most of the forum feeds and until today I thought it was a bug in my RSS reader but then I noticed that the MAIN feed shows the correct time...  Go figure???

Perhaps you can shed some light on this Mauricio?  TIA.

Strange. The dates routine is the same for both. But some RSS readers have problems with NZ DST. Both follow the RFC for dates as mandate by the RSS specification.

I will test this more later.
