Hi,

I am having an odd problem with inconsistency in my date and time settings.

When I set up the date and time in preferences everything looks fine and it is set to the correct location and the time is correct.

When I view the time in terminal (using the date command) it shows the time as 10 hours in the past.

If I view the time using a calendar widget it also shows the time as 10 hours in the past.

As I am on the east coast of Australia we do have a time of +1000 hours.

If I use ruby from the terminal to look at the time this is what I get:

>> Time.now
=> Thu Aug 21 23:26:54 +0000 2008

Obviously I need that +0000 to be +1000 but I can't work out how that can be done.
