Comment.DateCreated - timezone?

Topics: Developer Forum

When I process an incoming PhotoComment.DateCreated value, it is always 2 hours off.

E.g. if the comment was posted a few minutes ago (I checked this on the Flickr website) then the actual DateTime value  - from FlickrNet - would then indicate +/- 2 hours ago

Does anybody know why this discrepancy exists? and how to correct it in a robust way?

Dates are returned from Flickr as GMT date/times, so would be off if you live in a different timezone (or day light savings is in effect).
