Can you please help at all?

I have set up a clock on the following website www.dpc.co.uk
But the clock is miles out... 12 hours I think but I don't know how to change it to GMT. Can anyone help me with advice on how I can sort the problem?

Many thanks

The script uses Javascript to get the time from the local computer. I don't see a reason it would be wrong because of a timezone. What do you see, and what should you see? Are you sure your system time is correct?

Hi Danierl, Thanks fort replying so quickly. My system time is correct but the time on the website is 8 hours behind.

Not sure how I can change it.

I'm still not sure why this is occurring. It works for me, but that might be because I'm at the same time zone that you are seeing. I hope someone else will know.

Nailed it!

This was what it was...
var timeZone=-8 //set to time zone's offset from Universal Time

This was what it now is...
var timeZone=-0 //set to time zone's offset from Universal Time

Thanks for your help though.
