Yes, Hello.

Have you had a look at the calendar yet? This weekend will be the second Sunday in September and we all know what that means, don't we? Daylight saving time is here again and it's time to Fall Back, as the old saying goes!! Boy O' Boy, seems like we just changed them, where does the time go?

Be sure to move your clocks back an hour at 1:00 Sunday morning. Of course you can do what I do and move them back right before you go to bed. That's the best way not to forget to do it

Don't Know Much About History

Stupid design is rampant in software, and with it stupid limitations. Inevitably someone wants our software to do $Action which isn't feasible due to design limitations. After receiving a negative answer to their question about whether something is possible, they turn into Veruca Salt:

"But why can't I do it?"
"Because we said so."
"But I waaaaant to."
"It won't work, but I'll file a New Feature Request for you."
"But I want to do it nooooowwww."
Fighting with a software company is one thing, fighting with more than 100 years of historical standards and international treaties is another.

It was 10:30p.m. I was out with some workmates having some tasty Kölsch beer. My cell phone rang.
