Time switch sucksSunday, March 25, 2007 at 2:58 | Posted in computer, Personal, ubuntu | 4 Comments
Just for the record, I still think exactly the same as I did last autumn: doctoring the clock twice a year is out of age. I doubt if the possible benefits cover the damage. Cutting one hour of daylight from one end and pasting to another does not increase the total hours of daylight. And illumination has a marginal importance as energy consumer since most gadgets are running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
That said, being just minutes away from the switch, I am curious to see if Ubuntu is going to take care of it automatically. I am soon going to know.
Edit: Yes, the hour disappeared just like that. I did not even have to re-boot the system.
