As perennially requested in metatalk, how about a script that loads your preferences page once per day, compares "(your preferences time: 8:21 AM)" against your actual current time taken from javascript, and updates the server offset if they don't match?

This shouldn't be too hard as a greasemonkey script that changes the offset on document ready (only if it needs to be changed) when the user loads their profile page edit. I'm not so sure about running every day on a schedule if it's not an extension, but I could be wrong about that. I might take a whack this weekend after the turkey coma wears off.

My idea for "once per day" was basically, on load of any mefi page, if local storage says the last check was > 24 hours ago, check again. But just running on the profile page might be less finicky.
