Time Change

I’m somewhat baffled by the press that the time change got, with respect to Microsoft Windows. We’ve been doing daylight savings time since that Ben Franklin guy, and it’s not like the change in the date was a surprise. We’ve known about it for 2 years. Why on earth did they wait to the last minute?

Anyways, all of my Linux machines change my clocks for me, and kept it to themselves. No fuss. No clicking OK. No patches needed. They just did the right thing.

July 8, not August 19

So, that thing that was scheduled for August 19 is now scheduled for July 8. Because we didn’t check the calendar very carefully, that’s why. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then presumably the date change doesn’t matter very much to you.
