    Yep :) You got this covered.

    So if you wanted to display the time on the page then i would be:
    <?php echo date("H:i", time()); ?>

    If you wanted to put in into a variable you should be able to do:
    <?php $currentTime = date("H:i", time()); ?>

    Then you could just put it in a database or do whatever you wanted with it.

    Thanks all, I guess I should have visited http://tr.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php before asking. But we all are here to ask and learn, right? I also learned strtotime() function which allows to get the timezone difference into account. Here is the function I'm using now:

    date('Y.m.d, H:i', strtotime('now + 3 hours'))
    PHP:
