Beginning in 2007, daylight saving
time (DST) will be extended in the United States. DST will start
on March 11, 2007, which is three weeks earlier than usual, and
it will end on November 4, 2007, which is one week later than usual.
This results in a new DST period that is four weeks longer than
in previous years. Unless certain updates are applied to your computer,
the time zone settings for your computer's system clock may be incorrect
during this four-week period. In particular, you must make sure
that both your Windows operating system and your calendar programs
are updated. More...
Q: I have software downloaded
that lets me ping to the atomic clock in Denver. When I do it keeps
putting my clock back to standard time. Then I have to reset manually.
What's the problem?
A: Thank you for your message.
Our programs use the time zone settings specified in Windows. If
you install the Windows update released by Microsoft in order to
solve the issue with the new rules of switching to the daylight
saving time, our software will also work correctly.
We are always glad to answer your questions.
