There is absolutely no need to set your computer to GMT !!!

Setting your clock to GMT is like using "Rubber Gloves for Leaky Fountain Pens"!!!

Every program I have (20 year old DOS programs included) has provisions for compensating
for the "TIME ZONE" offset including the shift from "Standard Time" to "Daylight Savings Time"
where applicable !!!

It appears that there is a problem how CT get it's time offset data after using the "New DST
Patches" !!!

CT WIN works correctly, CT DOS has a problem !!!

Normally we used to use the Time Variable command "set tz=est5edt" to correct for EST/EDT
change over. It doesn't work now !!!

Somehow there is a problem as to how CT get it's info after patching !!!
