Most of my stuff at home adjusts the time automatically, with the exception
of a few wall clocks. However, at my work, I have to reset the cash
register, my calculator, my credit card machine, my Fax machine, telephone,
and one wall clock. The only thing that fixed itself was my computer, and it
isn't even online at my shop.

The good thing is I only have to do this twice a year! [g]

My situation is somewhat the same. My computer and my TV changed the
time, but I was going by the clock. I've got to start watching the
news!! Or re-take the newspaper, which is now around $250 a year. That's
a little steep to pay for a bunch of ads and a crossword puzzle. [g]

I thought we were still in January (joke), and DST was the last thing on
my mind.

I have to change the clock in the microwave oven and an older LED table one in
the bedroom, but all else set themselves, and most read the DST flag from WWV
correctly. Even a couple wrist watches self adjust as well as the GPS and a
shortwave portable. It's interesting that some of my older digital clocks have
the old DST date scheme programmed and won't correct until a week or so after
the fact.

I forgot to mention that I also had to set the clocks in the truck ('96
Silverado) and car ('98 Monte Carlo). I'm not sure if the wife's new Honda
set its own clock or not, I'll have to ask her about that.
