Re: Why do you timezone, Ruben?

Wordpress’ handling of timezones has always annoyed me. It’s one of the reasons I now use my own blogging thing, which has all post times in UTC (but displayed in the viewer’s timezone). Same for photo times.

It gets even worse when posting while travelling. Don’t write while sitting at Sydney airport and then again just before arriving in San Francisco, and expect the posts to appear in that order. Very annoying if you’re a pedant.
