Google Theme Time Fix

I’ve been using the Google personalized home page themes and really enjoying them. One annoying problem that I’ve encountered is that the time zone is wrong the first time the page loads (per browser session). I’m pretty sure it’s loading the theme for GMT instead of your correct local time. I finally got frustrated enough to fix it on my end. No, I didn’t move to London. Instead, I wrote a little JavaScript that can be used in Greasemonkey to fix the bug. If you’re a Firefox user and not afraid of extension, you might want to check out my Google Theme Time Fix (or my Greasemonkey page). Hopefully Google will fix their bug and render my code obsolete.
