Do you think the change in Daylight Savings Time will really cause computer glitches?

I can't see why, we are always changing the clocks here in england, they change this month sometime, it causes me glitches as it always interferes with my body clock!

I don't know why it should. Most PCs are set to automatically change with the atomic clock away.

everyone is worried about the clocks in the computers this year because they have moved up daylight savings time. Same thing when in the fall when we turn clocks back it will be after halloween, instead of before like it has been for years. I know it use to be moved ahead closer to easter. now its even earlier thats why the worry

From one who hates daylight saving I really don't think it will cause much in the way of computer glitches, it is more of a bother than anything, especially now that I have put a clock on my webpage, I have to change it every time the change over happens, I personally wish they would just leave the time alone...but that is just me...

You should use a clock that displays the BIOS time of the computer, so that the webpage will display the same tme as the computer that is linked to it.

I don't think that it will cause much of a glitch as it will cause an inconvenience. My corporate IT department already adjusted any computer that works off of our network. The issue will primarily come when those who don't adjust their computers for the new daylight savings date do not have the correct info on their calendars. I'm sure there will be a few misswd appointments and meetings.

I can see no reason for any problems whatsoever. Computers have been capable of adjusting to the switch for many years now, so there is no reason that they should suddenly fail to cope.

they are worried because they are changing the day and moving up the day of when we will move the clocks ahead and the computers are not updated to the new day of changing the time.

I have a feeling so. The computer department has been working on our computers and system at work for 2 weeks now just so everything will be fine and dandy and run correctly on monday after we switch the time.
