This Saturday (the 20th) at midnight, the time changes here in Chile. Don't forget to set your clock one hour ahead.

use there patch at your own risk, but it is offical, and should work

I never use it, i have a engineer tool to make my own i trust, but for home users this should be fine,

watch out for outlook apointments, change of hour screws those up, there is another program to fix them somwhere on the MS site!

I installed the Microsoft patch last time the time changed - worked like a charm. Will not have to do anything this time, checked to make sure it was going to change the correct day and it is. :)

Why did we "spring" forward in August instead of October? It does not get light outside until 8:00 a.m. therefore, when going to take the micro at 6:30, the drivers do not stop, arghhhh, because they cannot see us. Living in the "campo" does have a drawback.
