Time Change Tonight - Should You Worry?

Congress passed the law after deciding that an early evening daylight would translate into energy savings, so this is my geeky reminder that DST begins Sunday at 2 a.m.

In order to be on time come Sunday, everyone must remember to set their clocks forward one hour.

The new change means some computer clocks set to change at the traditional daylight savings time will all be an hour off until you check for updates or update them yourself.

According to the AP, the problem won't show up only in computers. It will affect plenty of non-networked devices that store the time and automatically adjust for daylight saving, like clocks and BlackBerrys. Need help

UNLESS! Because we changed it Saturday and it should have been Sunday that's why it wont change?

It starts at 2am so nightly backups don't get skipped/run more than once. And its a big deal because... well i guess I'm biased... I work for and the last few weeks have been hell because we had to put out a new patch because our systems defaulted to "spring" forward 3 weeks from now... rather than last night. The patch itself brought on even more problems... just a big mess. Chances are congress is just gonna change its mind again and we'll have to put out another patch.

Why does it start at 2 am and not immediately?

I don't get why people are fussing about this; it's not hard to just put the clock forward an hour...not brain surgery. ~~LmD~~ "To dream of the person you wish to be Is a waste of the person you are."
