SharePoint 2007 and Office 2007 both are already starting to make huge changes in the corporate world. All to save a little bit of time.
Daylight saving time (DST), also known as summer time, is a conventional local time adopted by many countries of the world on a seasonal basis. Most commonly DST is obtained by adjusting the official local time forward, by one hour, for the spring, summer, and early autumn periods.
Did you know that Benjamin Franklin was the one who suggested getting up earlier in order to use sunlight, thus saving wax by not burning candles at night.
Beginning in 2007, most of the U.S. will begin Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and revert to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.
