VirtualBox bios time offset (how to)

Q: Is there a way to set the virtual bios time on a time and date of my choice, and can I have the additions installed with that sync tool deactivated somehow?

A: You can set a time offset in VBox 1.4.0:

VBoxManage modifyvm <name> -biossystemtimeoffset <msec>
