I see those -0500 and -0800 on my system also. What is their purpose
other than to confuse me?
They are the number of hours of the time zone from it to UTC (formerly
known as GMT).
Note that (-0800) is PST, EST would be 7:46 am.
No, how does -0800 translate to 7:46. How come the 46 appears nowhere
in the -0800?
It is 8 hours before UTC. The minutes remain the same across time zones,
of course. The minus sign indicates 'before' (earlier than) UTC. A +0800
would be 8 hours *after* UTC, which is eastern Russia, Hong Kong,
western Australia, etc.
