Daylight savings time changes could cause problems



The Boston Globe has a story about todays energy bill signing and an issue which I mentioned once before. It seems that there are many devices that are hardwired to change to DST on a fixed schedule.


The Boston Globe is reminded of the concerns over the Y2K bug. I don’t imagine this will be a BIG problem, but I suspect to see it as a nuisance. The changes will start with the beginning of daylight savings time 2007 according to the article. (The change will take place that year three weeks earlier than we currently “spring forward”.)
