That's odd then - UTC is 2007-01-28 02:30, my local time is GMT+10
(2007-01-28 12:30) and the time appearing in my signatures is 2007-01-28

Ah yes, I had a look through DefaultSettings.php and I see there's a
variable for signature times. This was set to null (meaning the OS
default) however the OS was configured for GMT+10 and the signatures
were appearing as GMT+11 ("EST"). I changed this to "GMT" in
LocalSettings.php and all the signatures are now correctly displaying
Thanks for your help!
