Submission + - The Daylight Savings Change

sirgoran writes: Is it just me or did all of the time servers in the US fail to change over to the "New" Daylight Savings time last weekend? I've queried servers at US Universities and US Military time servers and none of the return the correct Time. They are all one hour behind. Anyone any any idea why or what the deal is?

Submission + - Dept. of Energy wants zero dollars for geothermal

LotsOfPhil writes: "The Department of Energy is requesting $0 for research into geothermal energy. From 2001-2006, the average funding was $26 million. This year it is $5 million.

The Bush administration wants to eliminate federal support for geothermal power just as many U.S. states are looking to cut greenhouse gas emissions and raise renewable power output.
The move has angered scientists who say there is enough hot water underground to meet all U.S. electricity needs without greenhouse gas emissions.
