  Sample input:
GetCurrentTimeZoneUTCOffset ()
  Sample output:
-7

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Returns a FileMaker time that's the offset from UTC + 0 from the current timestamp

There is odd behaviour with webdirect. Get ( CurrentTimestamp ) can be a few min off from Get ( CurrentTimeUTCMilliseconds )
Because of this, when the hour rolls over for one but not the other, unless we check for this, it will return the wrong number
