Daylight savings time starts this weekend in Canada and the States, but other countries still adhere to April 4. So do computer programs... Will this cause any major problems or is it just this year's flavor of "Y2K"?

well it will cause major software and program bugs on computers and stuff because theres a new switch. i am hopeful with no doubt that microsoft is already alpha testing a new patch that will fit this upgrade of daylight savings time. i like daylights savings time, it gives me an extra hour of sleep.

Well, I was happy to see that my Mac knew all about the time change this morning when I booted it up. Had a little trouble accessing my mail on Yahoo about an hour ago, though.

I wonder about the computer but I also wonder about my VCR. The time automatically changes on that. It will be interesting to see if it does this weekend. I'm not sure how it works - whether it's the VCR or programming or whether it is tuned into a clock through the television. I'll just have to wait and see.

Not with windows .... the registry contains the data used for the time zone/ clock changes and this is flexible enough to cope. You can even add custom timezones if you wish.
