Double summer timeSunday, April 6, 2008 at 18:39 | Posted in computer, linux, ubuntu | Leave a comment
As I have not booted the Windows partition of my laptop since the daylight saving time was introduced a week ago, Windows today assumed that the computer still had the regular zone time and adjusted the computer’s clock one more hour ahead. As Ubuntu takes care of summer vs winter time adjustments automatically and even if the computer happens to be running at the exact moment of adjusting, this naturally resulted as a double summer time. Fortunately, though, a manual check against international time servers fixed the bug once I had controlled that I had the correct time zone selected.
As if one time switch were not bad enough, two of them is at least one too many. And what the heck makes Windows think it would be the only opsys present at my laptop?
