Daylight saving time fast approaching

NATIONWIDE -- Daylight saving time is fast approaching. Clocks across the country will be set ahead one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. But not everything is ready for the change. The government pushed the beginning of daylight saving time ahead to the second Sunday in March.

Computers and other equipment made before the change are programmed for the old day, which was the first Sunday in April. Computer experts say last year's switch caused some problems with computer users.

"We heard stories where people actually missed meetings or there was confusion with the time of the meetings because it was scheduled and Outlook made the adjustment for daylight saving time but it wasn't right. Then three weeks later it was made again and certainly that caused some confusion,? said David A. Milman, RescueCom CEO.

Milman also says most software manufacturers have made clock patches available to computer users to fix the problem. Daylight saving time was observed back in 1918 as a way to save electricity during the summer.
