PC & Mobile Phone clocks get daylight savings wrong in NSW

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

This year NSW has extended daylight savings by a week – so PCs and phones that have not had the latest patches in NSW changed this morning back 1 hour – which has caused a lot of confusion! Just set it forward 1 hour to get back to the normal time – BUT remember to set it back 1 hour next sunday !!
