Zapped in the DST


Two weeks after the change to DST I have come to conclude this change is more significant than Y2K.

I felt no impact as a result of Y2K. But for DTS the story is different. Mostly in the form of scheduled meeting. Some meetings survived the change to DST with the correct time; some didn’t and ended up being rescheduled to one hour later. Some calendars switch some meetings properly but not all. I’ve caught most but the problem has been with our room booking system. Pre-existing meetings were reschedule to be one hour later so double bookings have been the result. Lots of grief.

The DST change didn’t receive the same level of attention that Y2K did. Demonstrates the difference that comes with planning.
