want automatic time with locked in (selected) timezone (Droid)

 Not sure who is responsible for the (in my mind) ridiculous decision
to disable the ability to choose desired timezone if automatic (use
system provided values) time preference is selected in my Droids
settings.  I need my phone to ALWAYS show Central time.  I do not know
if this is a Droid specific issue.

I should be able to choose my desired timezone and still have time
updated automatically regardless of my location.  I am a long haul
trucker and my logbook is always in Central Time.  I cannot be the
only person that would prefer this ability.

If anyone knows the proper and ultimate place to post my request/
COMPLAINT, please tell me.

1. One more question about screen brightness

*How to change brightness:*
1) android.provider.Settings.System.putInt(getContentResolver(), 
#1 Need to turn off and then turn on my screen (Samsung i5700 Spica) to 
"apply" the changes.
#2 Doesn't allow set value below 13 (10?).

2) WindowManager.LayoutParams.screenBrightness = 1f;
#1 Sets brightness for current window only.

*What I'd like to have:*
#1 Change system (not current screen) brightness.
#2 Change system brightness 0 - 100% (0-255, whatever).

Are there any ideas?

I hail the auto-brightness and whatever Google is trying to achieve with all 
this brightness-mess, but...


2. VpnServices.apk source and how does it work

Hi all,

I have been searching for the source code for VpnServices.apk - trying
to understand just how this VPN application is implemented such that
root permissions are not required.
I think it is part of the core.jar but the only reference I can find
to it in the Android tree is core.mk

Could someone point me in the right direction and/or explain how the
app. gets at the IP packet stream to implement the security please.

I am very familiar with Linux kernel implementations and IPsec in
