How do I return the time that's showing on my box using PHP?

When I do this:

echo date("g:i a");

I get 7:06 PM. Looks great! But the time on my computer is 12:06 PM.

I'm running this script from my localhost, and since I'll have users all over the place, I didn't want to set my default time zone for this particular function. I just want to post the same time that's sitting on their computer on my site.

How?

Linux systems set the local hardware clock to GMT 0.  You Have to use the time zone to get local time at the server.  You have to use javascript to get the local time in the client's browser.  None of this is your choice.
