The weather is getting warmer and the days longer as Spring approaches, which also means that Daylight Saving Time is nearly upon us. In fact, the DST changeover is coming this Sunday, March 8th at 2:00 am. For most people, this means a trip throughout the house, hunting down every piece of electronics with a clock.
For computer users, if you have Windows Vista (or even Windows 7), you’re all set. For Windows XP users, if your system has all its updates current, you won’t have any problems.

Apple users, head here.
This Sunday also provides an excellent opportunity to do a few other bi-annual tasks, such as checking the batteries in your smoke alarms, confirming that your PC’s antivirus and antispyware programs are up to date, and making a backup of all your important data if you aren’t already doing so.
