We already discussed our thoughts on Daylight Savings Time.
I knew that I needed to move our clocks ahead one hour (that is TODAY
just in case anyone forgot). But I was not ready for all the emails I
have been getting to apply patches to various electronic devices in my
house. I feel like I am back at the IT department when I was doing
computer support many, many years ago.sfk
So here is some information to help:
- Daylight Savings Time details from CBS
- Info for TIVO uses from Zatz Not Funny
- Discussion of general software issues on the edgeblog
- Is Daylight Savings the new Y2K?
- A comedy routine on Daylight Savings from You Tube.
Anyone that has a PDA/cellphone should go to their company website to see what fixes apply to their phones. I use Verizon, and their site has details and links to the appropriate updates. For example, Verizon BlackBerry users need to either manually change the time in the Options-Date/Time or apply a patch. For those non-techies, a patch is not the piece of fabric applied to cover holes on kids pants, it is a a small piece of software designed to update or fix problems with a computer program.
With my kids begging to go on a bike ride, I am going to manually make the change on my BlackBerry for now…..
