Is within time range?

Paypal is going to have an outage between 11:30PM PDT and 4:00AM PDT on Sept 24 and 25, 2011.

I want to be able to throw a dialog that notifies my customers that their purchases may not go through due to this outage and they must try again later.

How would I tell if the time, I know, using JavaScript, it will be the client's computer time, is between the time frame above?

just convert it to milliseconds, it will become easier

var d1 = new Date();
d1.setDate(24);
d1.setMonth(8);
d1.setFullYear(2011);
d1.setHours(23);
d1.setMinutes(30);

var d2 = new Date();
d2.setDate(25);
d2.setMonth(8);
d2.setFullYear(2011);
d2.setHours(4);
d2.setMinutes(0);

var currentTime = new Date();
var currentTimeMS = currentTime.getTime();


if ( d1.getTime() < currentTimeMS && d2.getTime() > currentTimeMS )
{
   alert("this is the correct time");
}
