i'm based in ukraine. on 29 Oct 2011 ukraine went to winter time, i.e. 
we put our clocks one hour back.

the current time in ukraine is 8.49 pm; the output of 'date' is:

:; date
Fri Nov  4 22:49:48 FET 2011

i tried resetting my timezone via 'sysinstall', but to no avail.

do i use 'date' to set my system time to the right time, or is there a 
better way of doing it?
