Here is an update for your website.

The link for TZFile is on your site as http://cvs.m17n.org/~akr/ruby-tzfile/

The correct link is: http://www.a-k-r.org/ruby-tzfile/

Does anyone have experience with TZ File?

I am running on a Linux box (Ubuntu) and it seems those files are 
automatically updated,
so that may be my best solution... assuming they work ok :)

ps. Feel free to contact me off-list if you prefer your comments to be 
private :)
