O.P. Daylight Savings
This morning, the clock on my computer automatically moved back one hour, as it would when daylight savings finishes. However, daylight savings in Victoria/New South Wales in Australia doesnt finish until the 2nd of April this year, as it was extended because of the Commonwealth Games. Obviously Microsoft didnt put this information into their time servers, and it was automatically changed.

So if anyone noticed their clocks moved back an hour, and you are in Victoria or New South Wales, it's not the end of daylight savings, so just move it forward an hour again :tongue:

Is that in the British Parliment or European? I like it the way it is.

I got the first edition of it (not very user friendly) from http://support.microsoft.com/. The new one is there now, you can get it if you want it, for a few days.
