As the title states, this isn't a beer question but I know this forum is packed with computer geeks who can answer. When the time changed to Daylight Savings Time, I set the clock on my puter ahead one hour. Since then, it keeps reverting to standard time and I have to manually reset it again. This has happened at least two dozen times since early April. Any ideas?????

You probably got something that is sync'ing your time for you. Double-click on the clock on the bottom right of your screen, hit the time zone tab; make sure your time zone is set correctly and then select the checkbox to auto-adjust for daylight savings time. Now it'll adjust for day light savings time for you. You can set the clock again if you wish.

If you have a 3rd tab there, don't recall what its called. Time Sync perhaps; that's probably where it is adjusting its time based on world clocks. Or some other app that is installed...

Oh yea, $125 min charge for the 1st hour

Most operating systems have an option for standard time or daylight savings time for each time zone. I suspect you are in the correct time zone, but set for standard time.

Time zone etc was set correctly but it was set to sync with an outside source. I turned that off-hopfully that helps Thanks! Um, regarding your fee- do you accept payment in homebrew????

Oh yea, fees are on the house for cheesheads. Those time sync servers are nice to hook to; set & forget. Probably just need to find another one.
