What time is it?

Daylight saving was extended by one week, but some electronic equipment did not know; and nor did some of their users!

There was confusion at the airport with delayed flights due to ticketing problems; confusion at taxi ranks and train stations. Most mobile phones changed and people believed them!

Thankfully I knew about the extension as it was published in the media. Also my computers knew about it as I do regular updates; not only was Microsoft on top of it, but so was Apple and Ubuntu Linux.

The unique ceramic clock photographed is in the kitchen of Encounter Centre at Victor Harbor.

In 2008 it should be possible to coordinate these things on a world-wide basis.
