In case some of you have noticed, your clocks jumped back an hour this morning. Reason being, last year Daylight Saving Time ended on the last weekend of October. The computer believes that is still the method. However it actually does not end till next week I believe.

Anyway just wanted to let everyone know, before they end up late or early for their appointments.

Microsoft has a Windows patch that was released last year to correct this problem. I have no idea where it is on their website... but it corrected the clock, Outlook and probably some other Microsoft stuff too.

Automatic updates would take care of this. But some people won't have that turned on and might not even be running XP's latest Service pack lol.

I was wondering why the clock on my computer was an hour behind the other day. Now I know.

Good points. I think I was only thinking about something we had to run at work for the Exchange Server.

What's really funny is that the clock on the Continuum game server that runs Extreme-games is a half an hour off instead of the full hour.  I think one of the smods needs to replace the battery in his watch or something *haha

I just wish they kept it the old way, it was a pain having to set my VCR to the proper time.  It does have a Daylight savings function, but of course, it's not the new one.
