DST is all wacky this year. Don't forget to patch your PC's!!!

http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cp_dst

Windows, Outlook... and other scheduling or time sensitive software will need to be updated. I'm 3,000 terminals deep in updates.... fun fun.

*change occurs early morning hours of this Sunday (2am?)

we still use exchange 5.5. We were going to upgrade to exchange 2003, but other things happened that had us push that off for a while. Since 5.5 is no longer supported by MS, in order to get a patch you have to pay $4000 to Microsoft.....as well as over $200k in retroactive support fees.

Yeah, that's not going to happen. I hope people don't get confused when looking at their calendars.

I was pretty shocked when I heard about this in class.
This is exactly what I said to my friend:

"You can't just decide to change time!"

Although, I didn't know the reason then.

i work 6am-3pm and i drive southeast to work on the infamous 405 in the morning at around 5:30am. on clear mornings, the sun can be like laserbeams into my eyes, even with 8) , so for selfish reasons, this makes my drive in the dark, which is just fine with me, from a commuter standpoint. patching servers sucked.

The correct statement is:

Lifes a bitch, then you marry one, and then you die.
