I checked in a file to Visual SourceSafe at 3:49pm. My colleague applied a label to our files at 4:29pm. Now wouldn't you think that my changes would be included in the label. Well, you would be wrong if you think that VSS works in the obvious way. I work in Atlanta using EST and my colleague was working in Mineapolis using CST. Apparently VSS is totally clueless about timezones, and it does not use GMT internally. Instead, it recorded my check-in at 3:49pm, and my colleague's label at 3:29pm, which was his local time. That's right, even though my changes occurred before his label, his label was recorded before my changes! I checked the contents of the labeled file just to make sure it was not a discrepancy of history being displayed, and it was not. The labeled file clearly did not contain my changes that were checked in prior to the label. Now I have to tell my team of consultants to always set their local PC time to EST before working with VSS!
