Visitor Localtime Appears Off


Hey, I’m not sure what is being used to capture the visitor local time, but it seems to be off in at least two of the 10 or so entries I looked at.

First, I am in the Pacific Timezone ( UTC -8 ). Today I had a visitor from the same city log:

First Action Time: 2011-03-16 21:34:45 UTC (1:34pm my time)
Visitor Localtime: 14:34:45 (2:34pm their time)

These should be the same.

Second example, someone from the Eastern (UTC -5)

First Action Time: 2011-03-16 21:58:41 UTC (1:58pm my time)
Visitor Localtime: 14:58:51 UTC (2:58pm their time)

These are only 1 hour apart, but should be 3 hours apart.

Is this because of the visitors clock being that time, or is there a way for me to alter these to show correctly?

This is based on the visitor operating system time

Are you accounting for Daylight Savings Time? Currently Eastern Time is UTC-4 not UTC-5 this changed on 3/12
