Day Light Savings Time caused the clocks in the US to be set back an hour last night. Remember the boards clock is set to GMT, so those of us that had to set our clocks back last night, also will need to do the same here.

Visit your "profile [webmasterworld.com]" to set your GMT time offset.

Thank's for reminding me Brett. Ever since daylight savings time was invented, my morning paper has had its start and end right on the frontpage. But not today. And not inside either. If I hadn't seen this post at 2:45 pm local time (or 3:45 as I thought it was), I would have missed it this year, gone to bed too early, gotten up too early, then hung around alone in the office for an hour and finally been the subject of snide remarks. I owe you.

Last night I was working at 2am. Yes, I know - working at 2am Sunday morning is a bit much. However, Windows became very creative.

At 2am Windows automatically reset my system to EST -- 1am -- very thoughful Mr. Gates, thank you. Then 2am arrived for the second time and Windows automatically reset again. Probably would have looped indefinitely as long as I kept the system up!

Just another Windows feature, I guess.
