Installation
Download the zip file and extract it into FARR's Plugin directory.

Updating
TimeZone uses dcUpdater, which is pretty straight forward; or unzip the update file over the top of your current installation (the update should keep your current settings)

Version 1.4.2: timezone.zip (731.69 kB - downloaded 846 times.)

Also available at My Site

Notes
A full readme is included, but it's pretty simple: just type tz to get going...

I had real issues grabbing the data from TimeAndDate.com using xmlhttpRequest: I couldn't get the javascript to cope with the unicode characters. I now use a separate programme to download and parse the data: I think it ended up better anyway, as the data file is stored on disk so startup is quicker.

I've not been able to get this to work with the newer versions of FScript.dll, so stay with the provided version (1.8)  :-\

All comments appreciated, I'm still feeling my way around FARR a little and not sure I'm doing things correctly?

Hope you enjoy it!

You'll need a connection to grab the data initially, but after that it's just when the time changes.

We have issues at work and being a local datafile makes the whole thing work there, so I find that aspect of it great.
