We have come across several times where it would be nice to change the timezone on the servers we are administering. While you would think this would be straight forward, it's not as easy as you'd think. Usually, with a GUI you just set the timezone, and you're done. On a server, there's no GUI to check the timezone. So how exactly do you change the timezone? This line of code changes your system timezone to "New York" or commonly known as "Eastern" time.
