Hello Ms Randomcoder,

there is no specific solution unfortunately.  Having spent a year living
and working across time zones, I was unable to find a good
solution.  And, in fact, the problem was compounded by trying to
synchronise org data with Google's calendar and with MS Outlook.  I
eventually simply stopped synchronising and relied on my computer
having the time that was appropriate for where I was at the time.  All
org data were "local" time with a fluid definition of "local".
