US Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend

Just a reminder this is the weekend that Daylight Savings Time starts in the US at 02:00 local time Sunday morning. This is the time change where we set our clocks one hour ahead, and we lose an hour.

On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday in March and end the first Sunday in November. Under the old system DST would have started this weekend. Next week we gain an additional week of DST under Energy Policy Act of 2005.

Microsoft and other software vendors recommend you pay close attention to your calendar doing this extending DST period. Problems with other nonrecurring events might still happen.
