    Hi there, I was just wondering why UTC and GMT appear to displace the data by an hour when switching between the two - it was my understanding that UTC was the same as GMT and so switching between the two shouldn't alter the data. Should GMT actually be named BST?

    Hi Matt I'll look into the issue, I can't recall from the top of my head where we source the timezone strings from. We provide UTC as a lowest common denominator, but from looking at this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2292334/difference-between-utc-and-gmt-standard-time-in-net it could seem that the undelying OS is the root of the confusion. Thanks for reporting be sure to send any other feedback or questions our way Best regards Soren EQATEC Team

    Hi Matt Just did a quick check and it seems that we are getting the timezone strings using the standard .Net TimeZoneInfo.Local.DisplayName, so it is really Windows that is not fully correct in its representation. Hope this helps clarity the issue Let me know if you encounter any other issues Soren EQATEC Team
