There was a patch available for W2K pro when the change occurred.
Mine updated automatically. Should still be available on Microsoft.
If you can't find it ping me and I'll search to see if I retained it.
No ... I used a network admin tool, which is an update of something I
already had, but wasn't aware that it would apply the registry fix to Win 2K
without having to go through the dance.
Didn't work on this Win 2K box, which is no longer supported and as we could
see in my message time stamps. I still haven't checked to see how they're
showing up correctly ... will do that on my Vista machine later.
With daylight savings time upon us again, I hoped the government would
have issued proper instructions for setting our clocks forward.
When we went OFF daylight savings last fall, the lack of proper
instructions caused me a lot of problems. The government said that at
2:00 AM on Sunday, November 4, we had to set our clocks back one hour.
I am a very law abiding person, so on Saturday night, I set my alarm
clock to go off a 2:00 AM Sunday morning. When it went off, I was a
very sleepy but I got up and dutifully set all my clocks back an hour.
I then went back to bed.
After only a short time, the alarm woke me up. It was 2:00 AM. So I
got up and set all my clocks back an hour. I went back to sleep.
The alarm woke me . . . . . . .
Ah, yet another reason to love Arizona (besides the spring-like weather
right now). On Sunday, California joined our time zone and Colorado gained
an hour on us. I got up at my usual time, didn't mess with my circadean
rhythms and got to watch people on both time zone sides of me yawn and
ask "wha' happened?"
/pity the poor AZ politician who even breathes a whisper of the idea that we
join the rest of the sheep messing with their clocks.
If you're going to be dumb, you better be tough
The same was true here in Indiana for about 35 years until 3 years ago
we elected a governor who was convinced we were in dire economic
straits because "nobody knew what time it was in Indiana". He twisted
just enough representatives arms to get the change through, by one
vote, and now you in Arizona have the distinction of being the only
state in the 48 to have the common sense to leave their clocks alone.
I envy you greatly. Your weather's better too, this time of year at
I think we might grow better hardwood here, though.
