Intelligent Time Zone display (online or local)

This might be of use, so I shall mention it:
I recall that the FARR plugin TimeZone was very good    :Thmbsup:   but I uninstalled it as it stopped working for me (on Win XP), and I never went back to reinstall it after that. I think it worked OK with Win7 though. I might try it on Win10 now that I have recalled it.

See discussion: Re: FARR Plugin: TimeZone [Update version 1.4.2]

EDIT: 2017-08-12 2012hrs: Nope. Cannot get FARRTimeZone to work. It installs OK (from a .ZIP file), but the all-important Options settings page seems to be inoperable. The user has to stop the FARRTimeZone process before that page can even be accessed.
Maybe that might have been why I gave it up years ago; not sure.
Maybe it has been abandoned? The author (@Perry Mowbray) doesn't seem to have updated/fixed the proggie since v1.4.2 - 2010.12.08.

+me makes 3.

It is a Nokia Lumia 830 that my son gave me to use - he had it lying around unused when he was working at a telco.
The phone's app. Lumia Office Lens integrates superbly for document/OCR capture and image capture into MS OneNote.

With that kind of support, it's a wonder that they drew back on it. There's money to be made!

Me mock?  Never!  And if it was- it was a friendly mocking :P

Truthfully, I was almost along with you for the ride.  But instead I put off getting a phone until after Windows Phone was pretty much dead.

There, but for the grace of God, go I...

oddly, it's almost three minutes out by my clock here, which I'm just after syncing with (August 11, 2017, 07:26 AM)

What if you use ?

It'll pick the closest to your location, I've got a 8-10 second delay between system and what that site shows.

I thought at some point someone mentioned a util that did something with the system clock, (measured the delay?) ?
@Miles when he was having trouble syncing to the college LAN or something?
