    I hate daylights saving.

    Ah, Vista users need not be worried for it's ready. XP users need to make sure they updated.

    Noooo! This is the bad one where I have to go to bed earlier and get up earlier!

    I think we should stick with just the other one. Whichever one lets me sleep in longer is my friend. This, isn't.

    Wow, this is gonna suck. Didn't even know about it until now...

    And I think windows XP updates automatically... At least it was automatic for me up until now for the past few years... It used to be how I found out about day-light saving time...

    I wonder if my cell phone will update on its own. I have no idea how to work it. Seriously.

    I still want to sleep in.


    Edit - Ha, the board settings changed on their own. Awesome.
    Edit - But...they went BACK an hour. I guess I have to change my settings after all.

    What I meant is that Windows XP doesn't know about the change in DST (yes, the one that starts now) and will think that it's still the same one from ages ago.

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928388

    INTRODUCTION
    Starting in the spring of 2007, daylight saving time (DST) start and end dates for the United States will transition to comply with the Energy Policy Act of 2005. DST dates in the United States will start three weeks earlier (2:00 A.M. on the second Sunday in March) and will end one week later (2:00 A.M. on the first Sunday in November).

    The update that this article describes changes the time zone data to account for the United States DST change. This time zone update will also include changes for other related DST changes, time zone behavior, and settings. Some of these changes will occur in 2007, and some have occurred since these versions of Windows were originally released. The update that this article describes also includes some changes that have previously been released as individual hotfixes. An example of this is the Sri Lanka change in time zone offset. This update will also include some changes that have been individually documented in Microsoft Knowledge Base articles.

    These updated time zone definitions will also be included with Windows Vista.

    For more information about Windows Vista, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista)
    For more information about how daylight saving time changes may affect other Microsoft products, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

    Edit - I wonder about the board settings, too. Do they change on their own?
    I restarted my celly and it updated the time. If yours doesn't, then double weaksauce for yo.

    So there.
