Spring forward . . .

. . . into a huge honkin' headache. Apparently not content with spreading anarchy in other countries, the US Congress decided a while ago to sow a bit of domestic chaos as well by moving the date Daylight Savings flips over up a few weeks. Unfortunately, the US Congress apparently forgot to consult with our new overlords before making the change, resulting in a situation in which lots of people's computers will be a bit confused about what time of day it is. Apparently the big names in software have been working on patches to correct the problem, but this depends upon users actually installing those patches. If they're anything like my mother, I'd guess that millions of consumers will simply be one hour late to all apointments for most of March and April. Let the mayhem begin!
