Re: [chat] Do timezone changes affect sysadmins more?

So that when you go back the other way in February or March, it doesn't 
do funky 12.00am date things.
i.e 2.00am becomes 1.00 am, instead of 1.00 am becomes 12.00am instantly 
transporting us back one day for a nano-second.

Someone, somewhere thought about this one when they invoked daylight 
savings...  and who's up at that time of night anyway (says he who 
missed the change over, but still set his watch right *before* going 
to bed).
