Hi Mark,

I can't see how the offset is supposed to straddle daylight saving
change.  Perldoc reports '"tz_local_offset()" determins the offset from
GMT time in seconds.  It only does the calculation once.'  Date::Manip
is also brain dead.

Modified the rating fix and seems to work.

Left out a few other changes that seem silly.  Like changing cache_dir
and location from command line, and renaming channels.

Thanks for the changes,
