That seems reasonable to me.
   I haven't been following this discussion

"get the time" will get a value based on the system's local time zone, 
so what you're thinking of as a constant is actually dependent on the 
system location. It looks to me like the server is three time zones away 
from the mac. If you don't want time zones to enter into the calculations

get the internet date
convert it to dateitems
