Susan hit the nail on the head. She's pointing out why I said it was a
"hack" - if you're not understanding the problem correctly (the
difference between client-side and server-side) then the proposed
solution might be "simple and workable" but it's still wrong.

More to the point, what exactly are your goals with this code, Paul?
Are you just trying to get the exact time on the client's computer?
Are you just trying to create a timestamp in their timezone?
