Default Time zone trouble!

Hi all,
 I live in Norway, but my web host is outside my timezone. All was well untill today. Now Norway has changed to winter time, and all the posts people make on my site are all 1 hour wrong..
 I've been playing around with the TimeZone and Date Class, but I just don't figure out how to get my date right.. Anybody done this before?

****************MY CURRENT CODE FOR DATE/TIME******
Dim strDate As String = Right("00" & Now.Day, 2) & Right("00" & Now.Month, 2) & Right("00" & Now.Year, 2) & ":" & Right("00" & Now.Hour, 2) & Right("00" & Now.Minute, 2)

All help is Good help!

Just a thought, but with a little research I bet you could get the CultureInfo.OptionalCalendars property to do some work for you.

In this tutorial we will consider our server is located in a different time zone from the one our clients are located at (A London related site is in a server located is USA for example).

First we must know the time in the server. We will create a text file with the code bellow, and we will copy it to our server:

Time in server: <% =time %>

Then we will visit our page and we will get the time in the server. In our case the output is this one

Time in server: 4:37:01 AM

Second, we will calculate the difference in hours between local time and time in server

In our example, in London the time is 10:37:01, so the difference between time in london and in server is six hours.

Finally we will get the code necessary to display the local time by adding 6 hours to server´s time.

thehour=Hour(now) + 6 ' Here we will add 6 to hour in server
if thehour>12 then
end if
if Theminute<10 then
  Theminute="0" & Theminute
end if
if Thesecond<10 then
  Thesecond="0" & Thesecond
end if
Local time: <% =thehour %>:<% =Theminute %>:<% =Thesecond %>

Local time: 10:37:01

Hope this will u.

With Best regards,
Ashok Mohanty
