Jim -

Thank you! by setting the TZ variable to UTC the time/date stamp on files is now correct. Thank you for the detailed and accurate response.

I appreciate the time and effort you put forth in your response. I certainty did not expect my question to involve such a extensive solution.

Once again both Linux and the people involved with it come out shining.

Sincerely, Ted "TZ" Potter

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste

(!) I wouldn't be able to spend as much time on these if I wasn't assured that they'd get published so that these answers get to everyone who wants to search the web for them.
That's why I spend a bit of extra time on them. I take a few questions a month and put lots more into them than I do into the rest. That's to help everyone ELSE that's going to ask the same sort of question.
I learn quite a bit from the research I do to answer these questions and to find interesting and relevant links to embed in the answer.
