DST; it affects more than only your PC!

Since we are living a digital world, meaning we work with a PC or computer equipped machinery, we surf the web, blog and I can go on and on, Daylight Savings Time is a hot and important issue. If people or companies forget to apply the DST patches they could run in some problems. Read here about DST and which companies have published fixes: http://www.edgeblog.net/2007/daylight-saving-time-the-year-2007-problem I already applied the necessary fixes on my computer(s). I thought I was ready to go, but I forgot something...

Yes did you got the brainwave now to? When you have a SmartPhone or a PocketPC you also need to apply some kind of a DST fix. I totally never thought about this until I was surfing some mobile sites. Microsoft has published a registry fix on their website but this will take some manual work, you can find it here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923953. There is one weblog that has published this fix already compiled into a .CAB file. I am not saying you should trust a file just published on a blog site, so in case you don't trust it he also published the code on his blog and you can compile your own fix.

So all you people that are using Microsoft CRM Mobile, make sure you also patch your mobile devices. Do not think you only need to patch your PC or Laptop! Make this clear to your System Administrators.
