...you might want to check it's date today. XP was made before they changed DST to later, so mine jumped back an hour.

I haven't checked, but mine is (supposedly) synced automatically with some atomic clock site.

Yeh, I have a sync with the Naval Observatory, but thanks for the heads-up, much appreciated!

Yup,I was up an hour early because our old, "smart" alarm clock automatically backed off an hour.

I get why people want to go on daylight savings time, but once you've done that, why return to daylight wasting time?

If you're on XP, whatever you do don't expose it to the Internet. You'll have much bigger problems than a time change. It is essentially unprotected from attack.

I run it in a virtual pc in order to use a print driver for a very dated but otherwise fine plotter. The fact that it is shifted one hour won't matter in the least.

I believe that was fixed in some update. My clock seems to be correct.
