FAQ The fact that the U.S. is springing forward three weeks early could leave computer owners losing more than an hour of sleep.
Daylight saving time will kick in this weekend, but that's not when many computers are programmed to expect it. Getting ready for the time change has proved thorny for businesses, and even workers whose systems are now patched could see some calendar items showing up an hour off.
Here's a list of some commonly asked questions and answers regarding the time shift....

I read about this for the first time a few days ago - is there any reason for the change of DST?

We went forward this morn as well. Some provinces have not made the adjustment tho, so it's an interesting situation to say the least.


My XP boxes are updated regularily, and there was a patch pushed a while ago that dealt with this "problem". Thankfully this morning they switched over themselves, @ 2am.


But that poses an interesting situation...what about those that were not affected by this hcange...did thier boxes update automatically? If they are in a region that is not affected, did they get the patch, and it did nothing?

How this was dealt with would be a very good insight as to how well organized M$ is currently....
