Timezone detection

04 08 2008, Michiel van Vlaardingen in ForLater
For a long time has been unchanged.  It was the first MovingLabs application and by far the most simple one.  However,  the time zone dropdown has been incorrect for a while due to daylight saving and it allways defaulted to our server timezone.     Because most users are from an other timezone, this might have resulted in some timing errors in the reminders.  To prevent this, we have made a very minor change:  Your timezone is now detected automatically using JavaScript, although you can still change it manually.  We hope that you appreciate this small improvement.
