Sorry Mark and Richard. Here is the real code snipit that includes a
hack that seems to work:
Mark, in your situation, you and the server are in the same timezone so
I would not expect to see a problem. I have no idea where my server
is, but it must not be in my timezone. I am guessing on the west coast
since taking off 4 hours seems to fix the problem.
It still does not make any sense why a timezone comes into play at all.
Here is the silly little app: Http://tarwheels.net/weather It has
been really cold here the last few days and I was not able to cycle, so
this was a fun diversion. Seems to work, but it has not had much
testing. And as you can see I know next to nothing about making things
look nice in html.
