How to Eliminate Daylight Savings Time?

I'd like to build a clock that makes shifting to daylight savings time unnecessary by instead gaining or losing a bit of time each day as appropriate for the season so that when the second Sunday in March and first Sunday in November roll around it's already in sync. Setting aside the logistics of making this work from a societial point of view, how would you do it technically? Something like leap seconds or leap minutes? Or smaller changes on a more constant interval? [more inside]

What time is it in Indiana?

I would like to write a javascript function that takes the current time and adjusts it based on the timezone of any of our customers around the world. "Easy enough if I know the timezone" I thought......until I started to think about daylight savings time and all of its variations around the world. What is the best way to tackle this? Is there a handy script out there to do this, or should I be looking to call a webservice? I still don't know what time it is in Indiana.

PC didn't change for Daylight Savings Time. Now what?

Uh-oh. My computer (MS XP) didn't make the leap and change itself for daylight savings time. I thought I was ready - I installed all the recommended updates. (Someone left the computer on overnight - that couldn't have caused our trouble, could it?) Is there any I should do other than manually change the clock in the systems tray?
