Ah sorry Dave, you can’t do that (as in http://source.squeak.org/trunk/Kernel-dtl.990.mcz)

The code is working ok if the TZ is set correctly. If I set PST
DateAndTime localTimeZone: (TimeZone offset: -8 hours name: 'Pacific Standard Time' abbreviation: 'PST’).
DateAndTime now -> 2016-02-18T01:30:48.40668-08:00
which is correct - the UTC is 8 hrs ahead of my local time.

Now, ‘DateAndTime now asLocal’ seems to me to be wrong since it returns just the same time. And asUTC appears to go the wrong way, showing it to be 9:30 in  the morning
