Are you sure it's the correct time? When I take out the dash the posts
are exactly 12 hours behind---so posting at 4pm (16:00) will give the
post a timestamp of 4am earlier that day (04:00). (Posting now at 10am
makes a post at 10pm last night.)
Taking out the -0400 altogether will set the time for 8 hours previous.
The way to set the correct time, at least for me, is to change it to
-0800. But that too has a problem---when I make a post with the time at
-0800 the post is always made at the current time, but it's listed as
"scheduled" for that time and it never appears in the blog. This happens
even if I first change the date to some time in the past!
