Hmm. Yes, it is +13:00 now!

More likely a Windows' one, since REBOL goes through Windows to get the time, I'm assuming. And when daylight saving ended this year in April, this XP's clock was two hours out! And according to Microsoft's webpage, clocks are put forward in October in the Southern Hemisphere, despite ours moving forward in September... But then, daylight saving's voodoo, anyway. You're saying there's a day a year with an hour missing from it? Oh yes, and not only that, but there's an hour once a year that repeats itself. "Yeah, right!" -- Carl Read.
