Tick Tock

So the clocks have gone back (or most of them anyway, I can't reach the one in the kitchen and haven't felt bothered to do various stereos etc yet).
This means I'll have to do a lot more driving in the dark, which isn't really something I've got a lot of experience with. I'll get used to it though, I'm sure.

On the plus side, being back on GMT means that windows no longer gets the chance to fuck about with my computer clock.
I really don't get that particular one actually. Linux knows about daylight savings, and handles it very sensibly - the actual computer clock stays the same, but it stores something somewhere saying "look, this user is actually an hour ahead".
Windows, on the other hand, changes the actual clock... So then Linux comes along and says "ok, we're an hour ahead of whatever the clock says" and I end up on +2 and slightly confused. grr!

I say all that, but I can't remember if I've actually booted windows this summer, so it's quite possible that XP does things properly now and I'm ranting for no real reason. heh.

Firefox 2.0's spellcheck feature is a bit annoying in textareas with html in them apparently. Might turn it off actually, far too many red squiggles all over the place because I use words that aren't in its dictionary. For example, "Firefox"... hmm

Actually I was going to write something rather geeky about browser upgrades the other day. Maybe I still will at some point.

    I was going to write something geeky about browser upgrades the other day as well... I need more things to blog about, my hits are dropping :(

    I actually like the way Windows does the times, it means I don't have to look at the PC clock (not the Windows one) and have to remember to add 1 or whatever. Meh.
