It's your time. You set the proper time zone in your Profile.

Well, I didn't either. It's only 6 hours off, which makes me assume it's Eastern US time.

I believe Belgium is GMT +1.

Either that or since we are on daylight savings time in the US, we've added an hour. In any case I'm pretty sure this site is in the eastern time zone.

edit:

No, I guess Belgium is on GMT. So it is the daylight savings time that has added an hour.

You are correct. The main site is based out of Buffalo, NY.
