Hi guys,

I am hosted in the US but writing an app that will have global users. One feature is an event calendar with event times. What I am looking for is a way to get the users own timezone from their clock and then do a date/time conversion so that they see the event date/time in their own timezone.

Not being a php/web app guru, what is an elegant way to do this.

Thanks in advance.
