I played around a little with CT10.01.008. I didn't have a TZ variable set and like what has been reported, there was a 4 hour offset. Which is fine for me here on the East Coast :). However, not good for most others. So I set the variable TZ to zero. It then had an offset of zero. Seems like the variable is being initialized to 4 if you do not have it set. So, therefore, I suggest that you do set the variable to a value. Set it to 0 if your time in DOS is in UTC. Set it to 7 if you are on the left coast, 4 on the right coast, etc. Try that out and see if it solves the problem. In the long run, I think that Ken should initialize the variable to 0.
