You are forgetting something .. And you "Jogged" my mind too ..

In my "Misery" App.. I had the time as the time wherever the Machine 
running it was located so actually that time was not really true .. Us in 
Pacific time are getting 3 hrs "Credit" time of suffrage

For my Ego I could claim it as "White House Time" ;-)

FIRST .. I Don't know the answer .. :-(

BUT .. Here is the requirement .. You MUST have a "Base Time And Date" as 
Greenwich Mean .. 

Then subtract the 5 hrs to get Eastern, 6 hrs for Central and add X 
Number hours for Germany, Japan, Australia esc

'Cause the way you are calculating .. As Pacific .. A person in Central 
using it would be 2 hrs off .. Tokyo would be 17 hrs off

AND .. As I said .. I don't know how to get a "Base Time" as Greenwich
