Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am not sure, but I suspect that early this week, possibly even by Sunday, something changed at StackExchange.

I used to sometimes check my daily rep and if it is close to 200, to answer a few more questions close to 1pm. However, I got caught out again as today, I noticed that when I hover over my username on stackoverflow.com at around 12:30pm, it was already showing

           today  week  month
reputation     0    x      x
revisions      0    0      0
favorites      0    x      x

What happened? Is the SE2 clock no longer synchronized to some universal source?

Daylight saving ended in Australia last weekend (or at least some parts of it). Maybe they're operating on Australian time. – Andrew Grimm Apr 7 '11 at 2:29

@andrew all stack exchange sites run in UTC – Zypher Apr 7 '11 at 3:04
    
As an aside: What time is it? – Arjan Apr 7 '11 at 7:15
    
I should have put some smilies in the question... and maybe the fun tag – RichardTheKiwi Apr 7 '11 at 7:16
    
And maybe a space or two in the name Stack Exchange! ;-) – Arjan Apr 7 '11 at 7:18

Daylight saving time ended in New Zealand on this past Sunday. 00:00 UTC is now 12:00 (noon) local time. During the summer, 00:00 UTC is 13:00 local time.

This shift happens twice a year. Some people never get used to it.
