Spring Forward???

This is one tired old saying.
This year it could be hazardous to your computer's health.
I heard about this from a client who keeps mumbling "This has more potential to harm our systems than Y2K".
And some folks are just getting around to it.

Any way dear friend and fellow Cyberstar, Karen Schweinfurth posted the following on her blog:

What Are You Doing About Daylight Savings Time
You may have heard about the change in Daylight Savings starting this year. DST will start three weeks earlier on March 11, 2007, and end one week later on November 4, 2007.
This could affect machines & computer programs that are set to coordinate time/date using Daylight Savings.
The first step is to ensure that your computer is prepared. For Windows XP users, click the below link to download and install the Daylight Savings patch:
Scheduling software, such as Microsoft Outlook, could also be affected.
If you use the calendar feature in Outlook, and have version 2000, 2002, or 2003, you will want to download and install the Time Zone Data Update Tool by using the below link:
You will also want to ensure that any fax machines that you use are changed to the correct time, as well as your digital phone at home, mobile phone, PDA, portable music player, programmable thermostat, digital camera, DVR, etc.

For other scheduling software, Smartphone's, & PDA's, check with the manufacturer to determine if you need to install updates to prepare for the new Daylight Savings rules.
