So, >maybe< your server is daylight saving time and,
the web service is not dst?
Or, >maybe< your web service interface does not correctly
identify your time zone?

Subject: How can a program find out whether a system is on Daylight Saving Time?

The subject line says it all. My Google Calendar Interface has started blowing up, and I've determined that it's happening because the C time() function (which is used in generation of the digital signature for the web service request) is now returning a time number that is one hour in the future. And the Google Calendar web services are rejecting it.

If I run the request out of OAuth Playground, the time number is 3600 seconds earlier than what I get on the 400, and if, in the debugger, I manually subtract 3600 seconds from the time number, it works just fine, which makes the above diagnosis look pretty conclusive.
