Post 27:ZeRealBigBoss: I appreciate you taking the time to email me about the DST crises. I have the philosophy that I do everything the simplest and most efficient way. I have no time for extra fluff. If you have a complicated mind and would rather do things the hard way...I suppose you may reap some personal satisfaction in the end. As far as "WINDOWS" INDOCTRINATION, I am indoctrinated by noone. If I could have turned the damned clock forward by spitting on it, I would
have done that. You over-presume sir.

The benefit of being human is the interaction with others; forcing one's ideological views onto someone else, be it on personal or national level, does not fit in that definition, so I avoid that. Consequently, stating my opinion abvout something does not imply in any way that I intend to critisize someone else for thinking differently; if you conclude that, then I have redacted my wording not clear enough.

On my ol' NT 4 SP6a box @ work I just turned off Automatic DST & changed the time manually.

BUT, I'm still running Office 97 Pro so there wasn't a patch available for my Outlook. When the old DST time passed all my reminders were an hour early. I then just rechecked Auto DST & Outlook is corrected. Not really that much of a hassle.

I'm so accustomed to "work arounds" with some of my software I use that this is almost a normal "routine" until I get my new PC in place.

(Same routine @ home on my poor Me PC but w/Office 2000 Premium)

Try this one on for size,
I was not able to run the patch on my system so I gave it up for lost, then came the message(just after the original DST date) that my clock had been reset.
I was very surprised to find out that it was 9:02 am Feb. 4, 1980 (oh man I have to go back to the 7th grade, that sucks (lol)).
Needless to say I downloaded the atomic clock and now my date and time stay right here in the future where they belong.

I like having my PC's adjust themselves for DST and for GMT.
And i like them letting me know they've done so with a little box.
It reminds me to manually set the other clocks in my house.

I got a DST patch for my Win95-B from here:

It went in smoothly and worked perfectly. Patches also available for other Windows versions.
