I understand the Tor Browser uses the UTC timezone but what about the tor daemon? Should I change the timezone on my ubuntu laptop to UTC to help make my tor traffic less fingerprintable? It wouldn't effect my workflow too much. And I could probably hack together a conky profile to display my actual time.

Where can I find documentation on the tor daemon timezone stuff? Any advise or documentation would be helpful.

Many thanks!

EDIT: oh! would changing my timezone negatively effect my VPN usage? I usually useconnect to VPN withfirst, then use tor. I know using VM/NAT is the safer alternative to changing my host timezone altogether. But I'm usually out with my smallest laptop (only 2GB RAM). VM isn't the most resource friendly option right now, even with xfce.
