An Extra Week Of Daylight Saving

March 26th, 2006 at 03:06pm

If you happen to live in one of Australia’s Daylight Saving time zones, and your computer’s operating system automatically adjusts the time for Daylight Saving, then you will probably find that the clock is out by an hour, as Daylight Saving has been extended by one week this year for the Commonwealth Games.

I nearly thought my lounge room clock was an hour fast when my computer was telling me that it was 2:14AM when it was in fact 3:14AM.

It is worthwhile pointing out that some online services (Gmail being one of them) base the time they show on your computers GMT offset…so you can expect them to be out by an hour as well.

Who would have thought that the land of clocks would be so exciting?
