How do I display the current time in Australia?
On my profile page I want to show the time in UTC and the time in Australia (currently Australian Eastern Daylight Saving Time, but at other times this would be Australian Eastern Standard Time). I have got the UTC bit, but when I put local time it comes up only and hour away from UTC?

A quick guess is that the local time is "the server's local time" since the WE server is in Germany. More to come ... after a little investigation.
Well Rob, sounds interesting - unfortunately I don't know what you are talking about :-( What I am trying to do is display the date and time from the point of view of whoever is opening up the page - or failing that the date and time in Australia (and then underneath that the UTC time). I tried getting into User:Wakalena/monobook.js and it looks like it is just starting up another page in WikiEducator - although it does tell me that after saving I may have to bypass my browser's cache.
I understand that User:Wakalena refers to my pages but what does the syntax monobook.js signify?
Ah, learning is such fun. Thanks Rob --Sandy Causer (aka Wakalena) 00:27, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
