    Daylight Savings Time Starts Three Weeks Early (March 11)

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

    Daylight Saving Time Help and Support Center


    Beginning in 2007, daylight saving time (DST) will be extended in the United States. DST will start on March 11, 2007, which is three weeks earlier than usual, and it will end on November 4, 2007, which is one week later than usual. This results in a new DST period that is four weeks longer than in previous years. Unless certain updates are applied to your computer, the time zone settings for your computer's system clock may be incorrect during this four-week period. In particular, you must make sure that both your Windows operating system and your calendar programs are updated.
    Do I have to update my computer?

    Home users: If you use Windows Vista or have Automatic Updates turned on, you may not be affected by the change in daylight saving time. If you want to confirm, follow the steps in the Daylight Saving Time Update Guide below.
    IT professionals and IT managers:The Daylight Saving Time Update Guide below will quickly lead you to KB articles and downloads for the products you specify in the guide.

    Also make sure to check your cellphone, blackberry, etc devices which may need an update.

    And if you use an electronic calendar of some sort double check to make sure it updates at the right time - if you have one that sends you reminders for example.

    And miss a perfectly good excuse to be late? But now you can enjoy and savor it, miss all your appointments, etc, and tell them it was because Microsoft didn't update your shit correctly.

    And the best part is: Everyone will believe you

    Sucks to be all of you. You see, we here in the great state of Arizona say NO to opressive daylight savings time tactics. Thats right, we don't change. Just swap back and forth from being on Mountain time and Pacific time. Thats how WE stick it to the man.

    Course, all of the national television and radio shows do adjust, so they go back and forth an hour every year :P Kinda anoying, but not as bad as having to screw with our clocks twice a year.

    Great idea - That way I don't have to remember which clocks in my house have the "new" time and the "old" time. A couple of my clocks are too much trouble to get off the wall and set, so they're only right a few months out of the year
