Time / Time stamp query


What is the current situation regarding the
1) time set on the CH server
2) the time stamp placed on posts - what is it relative to?

Are members defaulted to the time zone they set when they registered (I don't remember what the case is/was and I don't seem to see a "setting" for it in my account) or defaulted to the CH server time zone whatever that is? SF (US Pacific) time?

I ask because of this exchange I noticed:
Was there something going on with the time stamp of the post?
