    What OS are you running? My PC was bought in 2001, but I'm running Windows
    XP Pro SP2. It automtically compensates for DST. However, since AZ doesn't
    observe DST and my time zone is set in the software for AZ time, it doesn't
    change.

    I believe Microsoft updated XP to the new scheduled changes.

    Default OT: Time

    My computer was off earlier, had to manually reset it. :-P
    They changed the dates for daylight savings time so I had to fix it.
    Sorry if earlier posts were screwed up!

    Older computers like mine are going to be off for a week or two without
    manual sets.

    Mac OS-X 10.2.8

    It does automagically compensate for DST, but on the OLD time scale.
    The Government changed it last year so it's lengthened. My computer is
    programmed to compensate for it changing in October, not November.

    My Thinkpad changed the time, but my iBook didn't.

    If anyone is as confused as I am about whether we
    change time tonight or not, go here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History..._Daylight_Time

    For the U.S., the answer is no.

    I believe for Europe, it's actually yes.
    I think I saw a news segment on DW-TV
    which said it changes tonight.

    The last time the time changed, I called
    767-1111 to get the time, and got a recording
    saying the phone company no longer provides
    the time.

    But you can still update the DST rules even though Jobs has cast you
    adrift. There are various places aside from Apple to get such update
    packages.

    I'm actually not worried about it, but thanks anyhoo!
    I should be posting at the right time now. I'll switch it back to
    network time when it comes due. I think it's the second weekend in
    November?

    I've refused to upgrade my current software to "Tiger" for two reasons.
    One, I'll lose too much software that won't run with the upgrade,
    including all the stuff that runs on the 9.0 emulator (which Tiger does
    not have) and two, it destroyed dad's computer.

    Tiger is a BAD upgrade!

    i have that problem with windows millennium, but i thought macs had a patch
    for that (as the newer versions of windows do). if not, just tell your
    computer you're one time zone to the east for the next two weeks, or
    whenever the 'new' time kicks in.

    Update packages from elsewhere? Jobs setting us adrift? What ARE you
    talking about? I have a older Mac still running Tiger and mine is
    keeping correct time. Besides the regular software updates from Apple,
    there's this little thing called "Date and Time" that you can manually
    set. No big deal at all.

    Uhhh, how old is your machine? Why in the world you want to run in
    Classic? Surely, none of your third party software is supporting OS9
    anymore.

    From this graphic designer's point of view, dumping OS9 was the best
    thing that could have happened.

    Using my best Tony the Tiger voice: "Tiger is GRRREAT!" I haven't
    upgraded to Leopard yet and don't see the need to. I still get regular
    updates from Apple for the older product.

    Which of the old cats are you running -- Panther or Jaguar?

    I suppose this thread could have fallen into the current "cats" one! ;-)

    Interestingly enough, my sister is in London for a little vacation and
    she says that the time changed there last night. Looks like we will all
    be screwed up time-zone wise for a couple of weeks.

    I take it you never went to the Microsoft Office package for OSX. I'm
    running PowerPoint (and the other products of the suite). It can be an
    expensive upgrade though. I had the benefit of Academic licenses for
    purchase when I got mine.

    Ahhh. Jaguar. Panther was a pretty fussy install for me, but it worked

    It's part of the complete Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac package.
    Checking pricing, Microsoft has drastically dropped the price of the
    suite. Looks like you can get 2008 for $120-$150. This price is far more
    attractive than what it used to be! Not sure about the system
    requirements though.

    I'm still running 2004 and the pricing I see for that (yes, it's still
    for sale!) is over $200.
