The One Time I Can Let Windows Think For Me
I woke up kind of early Sunday morning, with sunlight coming into the bedroom even though the big window points north. As I got out of bed I saw it was just after 8.
When I sat down at the computer to check my e-mail (yeah, I check mail as soon as I wake up -- I never said I wasn't a dork) I saw the computer's clock was off by about an hour. I checked against the clock on the stove and my cell phone, and they both agreed it was 8:00 or so.
Then I remembered it was a Sunday in April. A quick check of the newspaper's site verified that the switch to EDT had snuck up on me.
Fortunately, Windows manages to remember these things, or I would've been an hour late to work yesterday.
