I thought I'd share this tip - if you, like me, are annoyed by reading many times in zones which are useless to you, you can install this add-on for Firefox and have it convert all the times on a webpage in-line with a single click. Yay!

Hmmm, and all this time I was just relying on setting my location in my profile and having the forum do it for me...

you can highlight text that contains a TZ in it on a page and it will convert it for you...

You can click on the icon in the toolbar and every instance of text like "6pm EDT" will be converted to local time.

For example, the Emerald Spire entry in the One-Shot forum looks like this for me:
The Emerald Spire (Level 1) ~5 hour 1 shot August 6th @6pm EDT (10:00/+1 local TZ)
