Changes in Daylight Savings Time

by Volker Weber

The US is going to change the rules for DST:

Prior to 2007, DST starts on the first Sunday in April and ends on the last Sunday in October. Starting in 2007, DST will start on the second Sunday in March (3 weeks earlier) and end on the first Sunday in November (1 week later).

In this part of the world DST starts at the last Sunday in March and ends on the last Sunday in Oktober. There used to be one week at the beginning of DST where international appointments went all wrong. This has now been improved so that will now be three weeks of confusion.


I would say its my new date for noone can attend a meeting with me ;-)

The need for DST is a popular form of superstition.

When daylight saving time was extended in the US by starting earlier on the first Sunday in April there were no computers or VCRs that made the adjustment on its own. You had to do it yourself so that ws not an issue back them. New you will have to overrider the system and change the date manually in the spring and also turn the daylight saving time function off so it will not jump another hour ahead. If you have a computer in March you will change Pacific time to Arizona time and set the time an hour ahead and leave it that way until the first Sunday in November when you will manually change you computer back and hour and also to Pacific time. Those in in Moutain time that move ahead in March will swith to Saskatewan time for the summer. This in Central time that go ahead in March will switch to Indiana Eastern time. Those on Eastern time will switch to Puerto Rico time for the summer. In fact for computer useres it might simply be better if you had daylight saving time all year because you would simply set your computer to those places that don't change times.
