Daylight Saving Time
Tonight's the night for most of us. Don't forget to turn your "clocks" ahead one hour before going to bed tonight. That's, of course, any timekeeping devices that don't get their own signal or are programmed correctly to change the time appropriately.
Some older devices may not change on the proper date since we now have 1 month more DST since 2007. For those older devices with incorrect firmware, I have them set to "manual" instead of "auto DST" and I set them manually twice a year. You could see if there is new firmware available for your older devices. For items with new firmware, you may still need to enable "auto time zone (or DST) updating" or similar functionality.
On Sunday morning check all your devices and make sure that any PVR scheduled recordings are still set up properly. Some devices like telephones may require you to turn them on/off or will reset with the first incoming call, etc. For many people with digital devices, this may require digging out those operating manuals.
Whenever I purchase a new device with an operating manual, I also download that manual from the manufacturer's website to my computer and put it in an appropriately-labelled file.
