The version on the xkcd page actually rotates properly so that the right place is in the right timezone (and the Business Hours/Rude to Call bit are right as well). It's very cleverly done - we looked at it to work out how Randal was doing it when it first appeared a while back: it falls under the simple but elegant and efficient category.

I'm not sure if the hotlink means it doesn't work when it's embedded - I thought it would do but these things can be flunky.
I loved the words you wrote to me/But that was bloody yesterday
