In your perl-script of choice, do the following if your timezone is
an integral number of hours off from UTC:

$time=time();
$tz= (timelocal(localtime($time)) - timelocal(gmtime($time)))/3600;

This will of course be off for the entries in your log entered before
changeover, but submitted after the changeover.
