Daylight Savings Time (Officially Changed)

by 2143436756292931057199946 / February 22, 2007 7:59 PM PST

I work for the government and I received an email requiring user actions regarding Congress' official change to our Daylight Savings Time.

Due to changes authorized by Congress, the beginning and ending dates of daylight saving time (DST) have been changed to the 2nd Sunday in March and the first Sunday in November beginning with this year. As a result, DST will begin on 11 March this year instead of the previous timeframe in April.

I work for the government of Ontario up here in Canada and I know it's going to mess our systems up.

At least with Y2K they were ready, this one people are just going along like nothing is happening. I'm aware MS has a patch for XP, and that Vista has it already, but we have a wack of systems off the grid used in the field and programs I have written that are going to go funky in about 2 weeks.

Just think of all the devices in your life that automatically adjust to DST, going to be interesting.

I read that that'll mess up XP without a patch...

If I get 'AUTOMATIC UPDATES' for WGA and all that other crap, why not AUTOMATICALL UPDATE MY CLOCK??? Maybe they will, but I heard to the contrary so far...

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
