The time of the forum goes off of the timezone where it's hosted (as far as I know).

You can change the hour offset in Account Settings under Profile if it gets too annoying.

Its probably the forum time not being synced or something to your current time. if you click profile on the bar ontop, it should bring you to your profile page. go too the left and click look and layout. There you can change the forum time offset.

Correct.  I'm honestly not sure where the site is physically hosted, currently, but it used to be in Florida, and future-FT is being built on a server here in Virginia, so FT has always used the US Eastern timezone.

It's hosted from Orlando, Florida :3 (or at least, that's what Wolfram Alpha says)

It could be there, or it could be at their other datacenter in Phoenix.  Or it could be in both places, given the way their system works (though I doubt it).

I think it may be in Phoenix then, seems like the quote times are usually matching where I live and I never changed the timezone settings.

IIRC SMF uses a bit of JavaScript magic to determine what timezone you're in when you first register.
