HELP! When does Daylight Savings Time end in NYC this year?! [more inside]
How do places where precise timekeeping is essential handle the repeat of an hour when we go off Daylight Savings Time? [more inside]
I'd like to build a clock that makes shifting to daylight savings time unnecessary by instead gaining or losing a bit of time each day as appropriate for the season so that when the second Sunday in March and first Sunday in November roll around it's already in sync. Setting aside the logistics of making this work from a societial point of view, how would you do it technically? Something like leap seconds or leap minutes? Or smaller changes on a more constant interval? [more inside]
Uh-oh. My computer (MS XP) didn't make the leap and change itself for daylight savings time. I thought I was ready - I installed all the recommended updates. (Someone left the computer on overnight - that couldn't have caused our trouble, could it?) Is there any I should do other than manually change the clock in the systems tray?
What (if anything) do I have to do to my computer to make sure it knows about the new U.S. Daylight Savings Time rules? [more inside]
