Time zone

It has been pointed out that not every lives in PDT, the timezone set by MR12.3_install.ini.

The SCU clock has no notion of time zone; it converts the host time to Multics time, and adds a fixed correction factor to move 22 years into the past.

If you set the clock with Multics, the SCU will remember the difference in the calculated time and the set time, and apply that correction to subsequent clock reads, but does not remember that correction across reboots.

According to my notes, the SCU clock is in GMT, and Multics will apply the clok card time zone correction, so I think if you change the clok card, everything should be okay.
