Daylight-saving Time Ends Soon. Is your PC updated?

In March, we all dealt with the first onslaught of changes resulting from the new law enacted in 2005, resulting in daylight saving time starting and ending on a different cycle in both the United States and Canada. In addition to companies using custom scheduling, time calculation or billing applications that are date dependent, this change impacted international companies that interact with servers in North America.

Of course we all know the effect daylight saving changes have on our sleep. At least when November 4 rolls around in the U.S. and Canada, we will get back that hour of sleep we lost in March. We have a lot of clocks in our house that I have to adjust but, what about the computer time? Since I use Automatic Updates, my computer is properly patched for the time change. To confirm that your computer is updated, visit the
Daylight Saving Time Help and Support Center.

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
