synchronize - server time is different

I've just run into an issue due to updating a file locally only to discover I should have updated a file from the server first.  I have now checked on my server and I see that a file the host updated for me is time stamped about 19 hours ahead of my local time.  How can I use the synchronize feature if this situation exists?   In fact, I've seen this on many other servers I use, so perhaps I am not understanding the correct procedure to assure I have the latest files.

I don't quite understnad that problem...you edited an older version of file, and uploaded it over the top of the file on the server (which had newer changes)?  If so, then just use the "synchronize" feature in DW before you edit stuff, or setup the "file locking" feature in DW.

What's happening is that the server is set ahead of my own real time system..  so even when I update my file, I'm warned that the file on the server is newer than the one I just updated.

Ohh, time zone differences...gotcha.

I opened up my copy of DW, and saw the same thing...guess our time difference was just small enough that I hadn't noticed it before.  VERY interesting....

I googled it, and found this: http://www.samspublishing.com/articles/article.asp?p=31291&seqNum=4

"CAUTION

One suggestion is to have all the developers and team members set their system clocks to equal the time of the server. This can be important if the server is Boston, and some team members are in Los Angeles. It's been my experience that Dreamweaver doesn't factor time zones."


Kinda odd that it doesn't just keep the modified date standard for all users, and just do the conversion to local time in the local copy, after you get it...
