Summer time

This night, the clocks were set forward one hour in Europe, so it was less bright this morning when we woke up.

I was curious whether my PDA would correct the local time appropriately—it did, as did my desktop.

However, something still disagrees between the two, apparently; ActiveSync claims that there are 81 unsynchronised items. I wouldn't be surprised if there were exactly 81 files underneath "\My Documents" on the PDA… you'd think they could agree on what to do with file timestamps so that either both machines change them by one hour or both ignore the change.

I suppose that's part of the reason why "real" machines tend to work to GMT and convert on the fly; then you don't have to worry about timestamps changing suddenly or anything.
