Outlook 2003 Recurrent Appointments & Time Zones

I've been trying to find a way round this problem for a while now, but with no success. I spend significant amounts of time in different time zones, which leads to a real headache every time I switch the system time zone, as all my recurrent outlook appointments then become multi-day events, depending on which time zone I was in when I first set the appointment. This is esp. annoying for birthdays, which Outlook helpfully sets automatically when the info is entered into the Contact information but not-so-helpfully treats like a regular all-day appointment. So far the only ways round this (and this is according to Microsoft's own online Outlook assistance) are to do one of the following (and I quote):

-Use the additional time zone feature in Outlook to display the local time zone and do not change the operating system time zone.
-Correct each all-day event for the current time zone setting.
-Change the time zone back to the one used when the items were created.

None of these are particularly useful, simple, or elegant suggestions. Surely there must be another way round this? I would try writing a macro that at least does all the resetting for me, but have no VB experience. Suggestions anyone?
