Visual SourceSafe daylight saving time issues in 2007

January 31st, 2007 Comments off

Starting this year in 2007, the start date and the end date for daylight saving time (DST) in the United States will change. DST in the United States will start three weeks earlier and will end one week later than in previous years. DST will start at 2:00 A.M. on the second Sunday in March and will end at 2:00 A.M. on the first Sunday in November.

If you use Visual SourceSafe 2005 you will need to take action. If you do not update the servers and client computers, you may lose check-in information

If you use Visual SourceSafe 6.0, all you will need to do is change the clock on the computer at the appropriate time.
