%^*&*%$%! You get the prize.  I just realized that I've rebooted to
windows once since the time change, and now I recall it telling me
that it was fixing the clock for daylight savings.  I was busy at the
time, and so I didn't think anything of it (actually forgot about it),
but your comment reminded me that it, of course, screwed up the
hardware clock which was on GMT.

Serves me right for running that beast :>
