As you know by now, we had to "spring ahead" our clocks over the weekend. You know about the inconvenience, the missed sleep, the mix-ups on appointments and the difficulty with getting your kids to get to sleep on time. You may even know about the history of Daylight Saving Time.
Do you know how your computer automatically updates?
While your PC or Mac can keep very accurate time using Network Time Protocol, they actually need to have the time of the switch over hard coded in. While this can be updated using your Windows or Mac "Software Update", it does need to be set on the computer. NTP doesn't tell you whether your location honors DST or not.
That's great for programmers and geeks. What if you just want Daylight Saving Time to go away?
Do you like Daylight Saving Time? Did You sign the petition? Were you late for work today?
