We’ll all save an extra hour tonight, but does your computer know this? Companies typically have servers updating the network computers for the time change, but individual computers won’t be ready unless it has the latest updates.
What if your computer time is an hour off? Your e-mail software, such as Outlook, will keep inaccurate calendar and e-mail times and your Palm, Treo, Blackberry, or other handhelds might also keep inaccurate time records. If your computer time is inaccurate for a long period of time, it could degrade the performance of the computer over time due its time compatibility with other programs.
