My question is: When you are converting a time from one timezone to another, are you doing it based on the current offset of the timezone or the offsets as they were at the time that you are converting?
Hey there, Bill,

Not entirely sure I understood the question: did you mean to ask if we are converting Date Time according to the offset between the two timezones, as they are now, or if we using a fixed differential between the two?

If so, I believe the former is true, since both the .NET and Java versions of the extension use system libraries to do it, so it SHOULD base itself on the current state of things. This would be noticeable mid-daylight saving switch, which is why I suspect you asked the question.

Was that clear? Do you have anything else you need to ask?
