As you're probably aware, starting this year they've changed the dates that daylight saving time occurs. And I believe Australia is experimenting with daylight saving time this year as well.

Microsoft has issued a patch for their operating system to address this. You may need to check if there are patches for your other hardware, including your cameras and PDAs, so that the time is set correctly on them. I don't know if there's a specific patch for Microsoft Office yet. At least I haven't seen one. If you're using Office and the calendar in Outlook, any appointments you make during the new daylight saving period may be incorrect at some point because of this.

At any rate, this is just a heads-up so you have a little time to check into it and make sure you'll be on time for all of your shoots.

And you probably won't. Since the time functions are part of the OS, as you correctly mentioned earlier in your post, the applications shouldn't go mucking around or they risk being wrong when someone has an OS that's set up properly.

Ah, but we're talking Microsoft here. Anything's possible. I know they've got patches specifically for Exchange to deal with this issue. I wouldn't put it past them to have other applications that do their own thing with time and date.

Er, ONE state in Australia is "experimenting" with daylight saving. Western Australia is starting one of its many flirtations with daylight saving time this year.

Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania, and South Australia are regular users of daylight savings time (although Tasmania starts earlier and ends later). Queensland is worried that daylight savings time will fade the curtains (that extra hour of daylight every day) and confuse the cows, so it never goes onto daylight savings time; the Northern Territory doesn't either. Nett result is that Australia has three time zones in winter, and five time zones in summer.

The Exchange Server is system software - not too surprising it needs patches (seems to need patches very regularly...). :-)
