This is my personal thoughts, opinions and musings place. I will also rant about things, especially politically-correct things that irritate me. And sci-fi. Did I mention sci-fi? There'll be lots of sci-fi stuff here. And movies, too. Mmmmm... Movies

Daylight Savings Time

So, the are changing(maybe) their by moving the start to first weekend of March and the end to last weekend of November. would probably follow suit, since as the story above relates, it would cause too many problems not to adjust our own clocks.

Businesses are not ready, the story says. But are computers? Many computers, especially and / machines, automatically change to and from Daylight Savings Time on preprogrammed days of the year. Every out there would need to be patched, which shouldn't be too difficult. A patch could be rolled out in the next set of updates. But what about , or small devices that have no connection to the Internet and whose DST code is hardwired into them? How will they be updated? What about all the non- related time calculations that take Daylight Savings Time into account?

Standby for to fill the air with their screams of outrage.
