What will happen next Monday?

Sounds like it could be an very interesting day:

Perhaps the worst that will happen in millions of offices on the second Monday in March is that caffeine-deprived workers will wonder why their automatic coffeemakers failed to perk on schedule. In less lucky workplaces, however, employees might miss meetings, overbook conference rooms or inaccurately record the time or date of important financial transactions.

For the first time in 20 years, daylight saving time will not start on the first Sunday in April. Instead, it will begin three weeks earlier, at 2 a.m. on the second Sunday in March, the 11th.


Spring ahead, fall back...blah blah they should just do away with the whole farce. YES! I am anti Daylight Savings time, I realize the whole energy saving concept and the whole OMG let's give the kids one more hour of Daylight at Halloween but still...it never ceases to amaze me how we think we can control everything including the natural cycle of daylight and time...

For about 2-weeks now I've been receiving and installing Micro$oft patches twice a day, so I predict that Monday will be a big drawn out YAWN.
