ProZ.com profiles do not appear to support the concept of daylight savings time. My local time is therefore one hour off.

Of course, one could change one's time zone twice a year, but that would probably, on a site level, be a lot of work compared to adding a DST feature once and for all. (I even venture a guess that suitablish open-source code already is available for grabs somewhere.)

Great suggestion, Thor. This has already been added to our list of upcoming developments.

It will add character to the professionalism of an already good site! Go for it, ProZ.com, and thanks for everything so far...
