That is an interesting conundrum.  I can’t make any guesses, either.  Please keep me posted.

Apologies for what feels like a silly question, but I’ve been experiencing some difficulties with the call schedule for several months now so I can’t help but suspect that some part of the problem is real.

When I subscribe to the OFA calendar using the web interface’s “.ics” link for Outlook (either one), it appears I always get events that are an hour earlier than they actually occur.  If my arithmetic is correct, during the summer this could be either because time zone information is being processed incorrectly (as I happen to be in the Mountain time zone) or because Daylight Saving Time is being processed incorrectly on one end of the transaction.

In May I manually added DST offsets to a downloaded copy, which worked well for a time, but then I failed to notice when I reached the end of the imported events and I started missing calls.  Since I need to actively subscribe to updates, this means I need a better solution to the time offset problem.

Does anybody else on the list experience this issue with Outlook and the online calendar in a time zone other than Pacific?
