Screwing with us some more

Don't forget that Daylight Savings Time has been changed for 2007. Now you will spring forward on the second Sunday in March, instead of the first Saturday in April. And you will fall back the first Saturday in November, instead of October.

YOu know what's the best thing about this switch? Ever since Windows 95 appeared, my computer has automatically updated its internal clock for the EST/DSt switch. Now I will have to manually update my PC's clock. It's a trivial problem to be sure, but it still pisses me off.

Well, that is one good reason to live in Arizona!
Sure it's hot as hell in the summer but at least we don't screw around with the clocks.

When you update your clock, do it by changing the time zone, not by changing the time. This way, the computer's GMT (which is used for e-mail and other Internet things) will still be correct.
