Hmmm. That's a good method, but it doesn't seem to work for Windows servers. Yeah, a crime against nature, but it's a requirement, and it's making this simple issue into a total beast.

Thor, your idea of just setting a +/- X hours is nice, but doesn't take into account Daylight Savings Time. A lot of the world and some parts of America (Arizona, east Indiana) don't deal with it at all. If you do DST in your area, Check the current time on this site. If you set your options when our clocks were forward, it'll be off by one hour. That's fine for a realtime site like this, but no good for a scheduling app.

I write the code while the master is away!
