Feedback - curious time stamp behavior

This isn't a big deal, but ... on two different computers (one a PC, one a Mac) and using different browsers I've noticed there's a 7-hr difference in the time stamped on Forum posts, depending on whether or not I've logged in. For example, I just posted a response to Simon's update that purchased products should now appear in our Launchpad/Store. I was using my PC, and the time shows as 6:10a. But then if I look at the post on my Mac without first signing in to the forum, or if use a different browser on the PC to access the Forum without signing in, the time stamp is 1:10p, 7 hours ahead (which I believe is UTC?). Maybe something for Vanilla to look into? Or is there some user preference setting I'm not aware of?

If your not logged in, the forum cannot localize the time for you.

Thanks. I haven't noticed that with any other application or sites. I guess I was thinking the server would report either its own local time or UTC (or GMT for us old-schoolers), which the user's OS would then adjust based on local time zone settings. But, no biggie.
