Pliant is using the system time, not the local time.

It also looks like the documentation is missing, so you have to dig in the
code in module pliant/language/type/misc/datetime.pli

Lastly, you can't know when a user logs off, because HTTP is session less.
When a user requests an URL, the connection is closed nearly immediately
after the result is received. It does not mean that the user logged off.
In facts, the user really logs off when he stops his browser, or the Pliant
secured proxy, but the server will not know.
