    Doesn't affect us Mitzs, it's the first I heard of it. Every year when our clocks change we have a debate whether we should move our clocks in time with Europe but either farmers or the Scottish or the safety campaigners put a stop to it so nothing ever changes.

    I've known about this for some time, along with the changes in Oz. Neither should affect us in the UK unless we work for multi-nationals.

    Harry is correct, it will effect any multi nationals with UK operations as well as any UK company with ingrained US visibility

    Centralised time systems can get around this by handling the change at a higher level than on a per desktop basis, as well as shrink the impact on calanders and the like, but key infrastructure should be made aware of the changes whatever country your in, including AD, Exchange, Phone systems, anything else that utilises free/busy info
