This year, daylight saving time will end on November 4, one week later than in 2006.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?

Posted: October 10, 2007

If you updated your computer before Daylight Saving Time began in March, no additional operating system or application updates should be needed.
You should check that your home computer, as well as any mobile devices (Treo, iPAQ, BlackBerry, etc.) or calendars you may use have been updated. Instructions are available at the university's DST 2007 Web site at http://www.utexas.edu/its/dst/.

You should also check any computers you use at work to make sure they have been updated appropriately. Instructions are available at the university's DST 2007 Web site at http://www.utexas.edu/its/dst/. Many computers on campus are managed, so yours may have already been updated or will be automatically updated for you. If you need assistance, contact your technical support contact (TSC) or system administrator.

WHAT IF I DON'T DO ANYTHING?

If you do not install the appropriate updates, your computer clocks, mobile devices, and electronic calendars may be off by one hour, which could cause problems logging in to some campus services. In addition, you may encounter schedule conflicts in calendar applications.

Please visit the university's DST 2007 Web site at http://www.utexas.edu/its/dst/ for more information and instructions on what to do for your computer and calendar.
