I have added a full Dublin Core timestamp to each item in each feed. This means that new articles will appear in your RSS reader with a proper time, rather than the “00:00:00” they previously displayed.

I have now adjusted this once more since the times were recorded as time + 1hr (due to the server currently running with Daylight Savings Time).

I now check Perl’s “(localtime)[8]”, if it returns “1” then DST is in effect and I compensate accordingly. If it returns “0”, then DST is not in effect and no further action is required.
