Well, you are right. It's a bug in the underlying data.
grin As I write this it is 13.09 GMT (UTC+5), which means it is 22.09 in Perth (UTC+13), same day. So the dropdownlist provides wrong choices, because UTC-11 to UTC-7 are not correct, as they belong to the same day as UTC+-0 and not the previous.
Why the heck does anyone in this world would chose not to use GMT+-x?
Have a nice day
All decision is left to your taste
GMT-12 UTC-7
GMT-11 UTC-6
GMT-10 UTC-5
GMT-9  UTC-4
GMT-8  UTC-3
GMT-7  UTC-2
GMT-6  UTC-1
GMT-4  UTC+1
GMT-3  UTC+2
GMT-2  UTC+3
GMT-1  UTC+4
GMT    UTC+5
GMT+1  UTC+6
GMT+2  UTC+7
GMT+3  UTC+8
GMT+4  UTC+9
GMT+5  UTC+10
GMT+6  UTC+11
GMT+7  UTC+12
GMT+8  UTC-11
GMT+9  UTC-10
GMT+10 UTC-9
GMT+11 UTC-8
GMT+12 UTC-7
Or did I just mix that up cause of our daylight saving stime? no?

    As far as I can see UTC times are correct in the list, it just doesn't go high enough, according to this site, UTC and GMT are the same thing, which I can't confirm, but seem to think is a bit wrong :) I'm assuming Perlmonks has the UTC+0 time correct

    If you live further East of Perth then you are in even more trouble, the Eastern coast of Australia is up to 3 hours ahead of me, (perlmonks)UTC+16

    this site shows UTC-5 (Atlanta) as the same time as UTC+0 on Perlmonks, and verifies my +13 number :) this means the UTC times on perlmonks are 5 hours behind, does it not?

      Yes, UTC == GMT by definition (modulo technicalities, probably). The server thinks that its clock is on UTC (which it used to be), but it's actually on EST (UTC-5), which is the cause of your difficulties, I think.

    GMT is UTC allowing for minor shifts in technology.

    Right now, in Dublin, Ireland it's Sunday 17th Februrary UTC 21:32.
    According to the User settings page it's UTC 16:32 here.

    Something's wrong...
