Well agreed to some extent. But i was not getting good responses in
other groups and its involves time related discussion so i thought it
might be ok. Also its not just about javascript as it may sound on
surface but its mostly about timezone stuff though i would be doing
this from javascript. But again i agree with you this might not be
exactly the group for my question. As people have showed interest i
would like to carry this thread forward.
