    i have a form that lets people sign up for web conferences at certain times. Does anyone know of a way to get someone’s time zone from their browser and show the time in the form as the right time for them?

    I don’t think it’s trivially easy. Most signups that require a correct local time solicit the user for their timezone. It should be possible though… as there are certainly auto-detect-location websites out there. If you had location, you could cross reference it with a location-to-zip-code kind of thing and then a zip-code-to-time-zone kind of thing. Makes me tired thinking about it though, you might wanna just add a field and ask.
