[Linux-aus] Dual-booting Win*/*nix with UTC BIOS Clock

Just wondering if anyone has some super cute hacks laying around that 
'helps' with the situation as per SUBJECT.

Last time I looked, I recall MS had decided on insisting system clocks 
be in local time. It certainly explains why Win* boots in one time zone, 
the same as it logs in as, but then flips '($X*$Y) / ($moon phase^2)' 
seconds after loading the desktop.

If it weren't for email timestamps being a mess I wouldn't really 
bother. The machine is just used for tests of builds. But it annoys me 
no end every single day and I try to put it out of my mind but nooooo....
