Don't forget to set your clocks forward (Spring ahead, remember?) one hour this weekend. Effective at 2 a.m. EST on March 11 we begin the new (not sure about improved) longer period of daylight savings. We are shifting one hour of our morning daylight to the evening. Some of your electronic devices such as your VCR and computer might not automatically change their clocks for you since this is the first year for the earlier and longer period of daylight savings. Normally your software would handle this for you, but if you haven't bought a new PC with Windows Vista or perform the Microsoft Automatic Updates you will need to make the change to the clock manually.
Mac users should also make sure they have the most up to date versions of their software.
