    What time is it?

    Two of my computers are an hour slow. This is the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday, but Daylight Time ends in about three weeks. Is anyone else in the Eastern Time zone getting funny times?

    Solved

    My fault, I fear.

    I converted the two computers to dual-boot Ubuntu within the past 24 hours, and it had the wrong location, which I corrected, but it apparently changed the time on me. I'll have to boot to the other system to figure out how to fix it. I have already changed it back in Windows.

    Thanks very much for the quick replies - this really had me thrown for a loop until I realized what I had done.
