Or just 'export TZ=AET' before you run.
Actually, that works for 1.1.7, but I had trouble with it on 1.2 and 1.1.8. Go
figure. Sun has been screwing up Australian timezones for Java on all
platforms since day 1, in my experience, anyway.
At the moment, I'm using "GMT-11" for summer time and GMT-10 the rest of the
time. Or is it the other way around? Whatever, you'll figure it out.
I consider it much much nicer to set an environment variable than hardcode the
timezone into Java. Forget platform independence, what if someone wanted to
run your program from Perth? ;0
