What time is it?

I'm not sure if this is a bug, so could someone please explain it to me?

Hovering over the username at the top of the page displays some stats and UTC time. The time appears to be 2 hours behind. I live in a GMT +2 time zone. So if my time is 12:20 on the site it displays as 10:20

UTC time != GMT time != your time zone –  George Duckett Nov 18 '11 at 10:28

@George UTC == GMT except on sub-second level. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordinated_Universal_Time –  Pëkka Nov 18 '11 at 10:29
    
@Pekka, sorry confused with GMT and BST. –  George Duckett Nov 18 '11 at 10:30
    
@George yeah, I get those wrong all the time, too –  Pëkka Nov 18 '11 at 10:30
    
@Pekka: According to that site GMT and UTC can be up to 0.9 seconds different. (yes i know i'm still wrong) –  George Duckett Nov 18 '11 at 10:31
    
@George yeah, see my edit above :) –  Pëkka Nov 18 '11 at 10:31

It's not supposed to display the time in your timezone.

I didn't. Also, reputation works differently in meta: What does reputation mean on META and why? Is it different than SO/SF? –  George Duckett Nov 18 '11 at 12:05

@DenysWessels why fret over the downvote? It hasn't even changed you rep (of 1)? –  Shawn Chin Nov 18 '11 at 12:56
