Hi Mark,<br>
<br>
2008/11/12 Mark Beattie &lt;<a href="mailto:mark@empoweredwireless.com">mark@empoweredwireless.com</a>&gt;:<br>
<div class="Ih2E3d">&gt; Thanks for pointing that out. I can see where I was mistaken - we&#39;re using<br>
&gt; the tzinfo_timezone plugin for Ruby on Rails which claims &quot;This plugin<br>
&gt; installs a replacement for the TimeZone class. The replacement uses the<br>
&gt; TZInfo library (<a href="http://tzinfo.rubyforge.org" target="_blank">http://tzinfo.rubyforge.org</a>) to do the time<br>
&gt; zone conversions&quot; but I see now that they&#39;ve actually hard-coded the UTC<br>
&gt; offset labels for display purposes and have set Caracas to -14400.<br>
<br>
</div>I&#39;ve submitted a patch to fix the Caracas offset in tzinfo_timezone:<br>

<br>
I&#39;ve also submitted an equivalent patch for Rails, since it has a<br>
similar list of Timezones:<br>
