Hi team,

it must be a bit the ignorance of those who think they are in the center of the world and timezones (and their offset) are a term of the old World.

Here the bug (at least I would call a it a functional misconception):

the 'new' version 3.0.1 does not allow a 'server timezone offset' of > +/- 12 hours. This is a a functional mistake.

I'm living in Singapore, TZ is GMT +8
My server is in US, TZ GMT -6

means, I have to adjust the server time by plus 14 hours. The other way around it would be an offset of -14 hours.

In FZ version 2.2.31 this was not an issue and it was possible to adjust the TZ by +/-24 hours what is correct. Now, in the new version it is not working and if I try to reset the serve timezone offset to greater than 12 hours it is ignoring my entry and is keeping the last entry.

Interestingly, the pull down menu offers numbers from -24 to + 24.

Wondering which hard working freshmeat was thinking the world has only +/- 12 hours time zones so it must have also only +/- 12 time zone differences.
