Clarification on Windows time stamps

There is an old but good reference on the Microsoft support site that givea some clarification on how Windows presents time stamps (eg event logs, NTFS times) to the user.

Of particular note is this paragraph:

If you are viewing another machine remotely across one or more time zones through Event Viewer, the times for events on the remote system appear relative to your local time. In other words, if you are viewing an event remotely that actually occurred at 8:00 PM Central Daylight Time, the time displayed for the event on your computer will be 6:00 PM when you view the event from the Pacific Daylight Time zone.
