Event Calendar is now showing the proper dates for both 'Today' and the events.  Smiley

Just uploaded the newest code - Allowing TimeZone selection is an Admin option. Got some 'file bomb's refactored (they were coded much the same way as the section that was suseptable to emptying the vars files). At this moment, TZ selection is disabled. I'll turn it back on in a bit.

Edited:
The Event Calendar is messed if the TZ is not UTC.  Smiley

Still a bit more work - but I've got the dropdown using Country - City so that should help. The database that ships with DateTime::TimeZone is the 'official one' but getting the country names to render required yet another Perl Module. (Locale::Country - which ships with newer versions of Perl.)

The next step is to simplify the code I wrote and put in checkers so the TZ will default to UTC if the needed modules aren't installed. (Or make it an Admin choice which MAY be easier - easier to test at least.  Roll Eyes)

I have to double check whether ot not there are any odd places outside of DateTime.pm that have code to format time or are trying to access time offset variables that aren't there any more.

I have a wee bit more work on it - specifically some variable localization and import/export into Subs for the dynamic clock.

I've got a new Time-Zone selector going here. It seems to work except for the dynamic clock that isn't picking up on the correct time offset. (New York is coming in at +4 hrs from my TZ and it should be +3.)  Angry

Edited:
I think I have it working now - but more testing would be good.
