Daylight Savings Time (March 11) And Computers

In our March 2007 issue of the ASL Library News, we bring your attention to the Daylight Savings Time changes as enacted in 2005. On March 11 -- three weeks earlier than usual -- we "spring ahead" one hour.

Your computer may not know about the change in DST. If you're using Windows XP, go to Windows Update and download the DST patch (and, while you're at it, all other critical patches). If you have Vista, the DST rules have already been changed.
