Hello everyone!

I trying to work with time and I a bit confused... If I look at my 
clock, it's 16:59 (4:59pm), if I type "date" in a terminal, it says the 
same thing. I'm wanting to write a simple NTP-type server/client (it's 
not NTP at all actually, but does the same thing). The idea is that a 
client sends it it's UTC offset and it returns the current time, so the 
server side checks the time and adds the UTC offset given by the client. 
I'm a UTC/GMT +1, I tried obtaining the UTC time, it says it's 2 hours 
earlier than the current time (14:59). I tried various other methods, I 
still get the wrong time. Does anyone have an idea with what is wrong?
