Go to cp user >> edit options, you can change your time zone there. I live in Arizona, USA, we don't have daylight savings here so I have to change my time zone settings on XP-erience twice a year so the time is correct.
Why? It's always warm here, 95% of the time it's sunny and I don't have to change my clock 2 times a years like everyone else. (except Hawaii and part of Indiana)
You on the other had: It's cold 4 months out of the year, it snows, you have hurricanes, noreasters and you have to change your clocks 2 times a year
