At the risk of continuing a dead story, we are still getting reports of DST issues and annoyances. I can summarize most of it by saying that people are still having problems and having to resort to strange solutions. I'm expecting that this is going to continue for weeks and for some vendors that didn't get it right this time, I expect the same problem next year.

Without trying to downplay the issues that people are seeing with their servers/workstations clocks being off, we haven't heard any really bad stories of SCADA system failures, medical equipment failures, avionics failures, etc. I am curious to know if this affected any "mission critical" systems that support basic life. I am guessing that we will be reading about them soon in the RISKS newsletter  (catless.ncl.ac.uk/Risks).
