Daylight saving time

Check your watch, clocks, and time sources. Depending on your location you maye have lost gained (fell back?)an hour today as daylight saving time ended for North America and some other regions. Most modern devices and Operating Systems should have either had a patch or time zone update and adjusted themselves. Those that didn't, either egnore the change, or changed back early under the old schedule. For organizations that set all critical system to Zulu (UTC), carry on then. Devices that can't easily be changed, such as embedded systems, or systems that are never patched, can we say SCADA, mitigate or adjust accordingly. Pay particular attention to logs emmediately before and after the change.
