[wp-hackers] wp_cron - What timezone do they run under?

Cron events are generally scheduled for some period of time in the
future or on a recurring schedule. The only constant ticking time
value that never really changes is the output of time() or gmtime().
Screwing around with timezones the way WP makes the time value

If you need to get a time() -like value for a specific local time, use
this code:

mysql2date('U', some-localtime-string, false)

That will give you back a value converted using strtotime() that will
be in the same timezone as whatever time() is.
