Submission + - New Daylight Savings Time changes causes glitches (

Relayman writes: "I'm suggesting a general item that covers the various glitches that occurred because computers and people switched to standard time on Sunday, Oct. 28 instead of waiting until Nov. 4 (United States and Canada). For example, in Baltimore the "intelligent" parking meters incorrectly issued tickets based on parking in a space during a time that was not allowed. According to the Daily News, Blackberries also had the problem, although the article didn't say if it was all Blackberries or just some. In Toronto, the CityTV CityNews Web site was off for several hours on Sunday until the problem was fixed, according to the Globe and Mail. There may be more cases of clocks incorrectly set."
