Where I work the "big brother" machines (XP) didn't switch to DST so I
figured I would wait a few days to see if they would do anything to
resolve the issue. Gave up today and gave them a buzz and was told
to leave the machines on overnight for the patch to be applied. Then
I was told "hold on a sec" and then it would be done within 30
minutes, then I was yet again told "to hold on a sec" and was informed
that a tech had to come down and do it manually. Only 3 computers in
my area, wonder what they are doing with the other 4,000 or so
scattered across Chicago LOL.

And before you ask -- no, we aren't allowed to change the computers
time -- us lowly users weren't assigned the rights to do so.
