Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2011-08-18 20:03:58 UTC
The following piece of code throws instead of producing the expected result:

using System;

class Driver {
    public static DateTime GetNow()
        DateTime nowutc = DateTime.UtcNow;
        DateTime now = TimeZoneInfo.ConvertTime(nowutc, TimeZoneInfo.Utc, TimeZoneInfo.FindSystemTimeZoneById(TimeZoneInfo.Local.Id));
        return now;

	static void Main () {
		Console.WriteLine (TimeZoneInfo.Local.Id);
		var x = GetNow ();
		Console.WriteLine (x);
