The SANS Internet Storm Center has a long post on the Day Light Saving Change for 2007 (note it is Saving not Savings). This change is about 5 weeks away. Daylight Saving Time this year will start on Sunday, March 11th, 2007 at 2:00am and will end on Sunday, November 4th, 2007. That’s 3 weeks earlier a week later that before. The change was made as attempt to reduce energy consumption. Lots of operating systems, data bases, programming languages, etc. need updates. Not to mention our DVR, clocks, VCR’s. etc.
For a lot of information on DST see webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/b.html Will this change continue or will we have to go through all this again next year.
“The Secretary of Energy will report the impact of this change to Congress. Congress retains the right to resume the 2005 Daylight Saving Time schedule once the Department of Energy study is complete.”
