Here's the problem: the EU and the US do not turn DST on and off at the same time; this March, there was a three weeks' difference between these events. Here's what happens during this period. Let's say you have an event every day at the same time and, since you are based in the US, you are going to adjust times using the US DST. Day (2001) United States ...
I'm not a UI/UX specialist, but based on my experience I would do the following: keep a boring but grandpa-recognizable links "Log In" and "Sign Up" at top right corner. make a nice call-to-action button "Become a ninja" and place it on the page content, linking to "sign up" page.

I've used click heat before: http://www.labsmedia.com/clickheat/index.html It is a self hosted, open source, PHP based heatmap system you can use for free. It works well for click tracking. As far as eye tracking goes, unless you have hardware, you are looking at mouse hover tracking. I think clicktail has it. You could use the mechanical turk as well, but ...
Zurb's Verify offers a bunch of different types of tests(see the tour) for trying out concepts, and has a plan at $9/mo. A slightly more expensive plan offers deeper detail on users, but you'll have to evaluate if you need it. For another heatmap option, there's Crazy Egg with a cheap plan at $9/mo.
