[thelist] Why use UTC time?

What's the advantage for having unix epoch times always in GMT if your
app is hosted in a single time zone? Seems useless to me. Nay,

Can anyone point me (or give me) instructions to change this behavior
on Jaguar/PHP 4.3/MySQL ... so unix time stamps are calculated in local
time? I've looked in the INI files and couldn't find anything and I
have failed on google. TIA.
