I'm not going to worry about any of it. Airplanes didn't fall out of the sky before, and if I miss some spam because my time is off, oh well.

I don't think mail will be missed, I just think that the time sent next to it will be an hour off Not a big deal to me.


Y2K was a huge underwhelming experience, wasn't it? I was hoping for something big to happen, but it didn't

If you use Novell GroupWise (and we are told MS Exchange and/or Outlook, though we don't use or support these) and your IT administrators apply the DST patches to the servers and computers, any appointment you've made until the time of the patch, for the weeks between the old and new DST dates may be an hour off. This will also through off PDA devices that use sync apps to sync w/ your GroupWise or Outlook calendars. To my knowledge it has no affect on e-mail, only calendaring in these applications.

It's going to be bad for us b/c I work for a college and now tons of people will be complaining about this or not read the instructions on avoiding the problem and then waste our time later on. We have people in academic and administrative offices whose jobs exist mainly for calendaring and scheduling (the assistants to the VPs, academic Deans, college President, human resources, etc).

I doubt this will affect you or Martha; if it did you'd already be told by your IT people. I was simply stating that if you DO use these systems, just installing the Apple-issued patch is not going to help b/c this is a larger issue than just adjusting for DST on an OS X Mac.

We use Outlook for our online email access, but not for calendars or appointments.

My understanding is you should be fine. The network operations guys said nothing about e-mail. I really don't use calendaring more than I'm required to so I'm not even sure why it matters, but if you don't either than we should both be ok.

I take this back, we got an email today from the IT department about some update that will fix calendaring and appointments in Outlook. I've never even noticed a calendar feature in there anyway but apparently, somebody's using it.

I hate going to work in the dark and then going home in the dark, especially since we have no windows at work.
