thanks to all who answered.
I was on the right track, I just need to reboot.
I thought that may have been the problem, but I thought
that I would check with you all before I rebooted. Users
don't like being interrupted

Set it in the file /etc/init/default. (obvious name, no? ;^) I'm
not sure what your timezone would be, but for the Central Time Zone,
United States, you'd put the line


as the only line in the file.

edit your /etc/TIMEZONE file and reboot your machine.

thanks to:
