What's Next next? A new time for Daylight Saving Time

Just a quick post to point out the change in DST this year which will require some systems to be patched. I have some tech details over on Cobb on Tech. From a security perspective, the possibility exists that someone could exploit mis-matches between systems that correctly auto-update time on on 3/11/2007 and those that do not (mis-match being the non-technical term for who-knows-what-kind-of-synchronization-errors). One area to watch [apologies for the pun] will be access control devices for both perimeter and system security.
