You can now reference a visitors time of day in your campaigns (email and web)

Today, we just pushed up code that enables anyone to check the local time of their visitors to see if it's morning or evening. Why would you need that?
Well, selfishly I really wanted this for myself. 
In my projects and stores I add a non-generic salutation in my messaging (i.e using "Good Morning" or "Good Evening" instead of "Hey" in a survey) just for good measure. 
I can't quantify if it improves conversion rate, but I know that when I go to my local pub and they say it to me when I enter I get a better feeling than if they just said a generic hello. 
To use this simply write {{ visitor.time_of_day }} in your surveys, emails or personalisation campaigns and we'll return the following two values: "morning" or "evening".
You can also use conditional statements if you so desire.
{% if visitor.time_of_day == 'morning' %}  Put something here. {% endif %}
I can't wait to see what you all do with it! If you need help, just give us a yell via chat.
