BlackBerry DST 2007 Patch

Link: http://www.blackberry.com/DST2007/patch/index2.shtml

It slipped my mind that I would need to patch my Blackberry for the upcoming DST change. Perhaps because it is only a few months old.

I suppose I should update my old Blackberry...even though I don't know what I'm going to do with it. Can't quite get around to selling it, even though a unlocked 7100t should go easily....

Wonder what else I've forgotten about that'll need or won't cope with the DST change....:??:

DST Update for old Suns at work

Well, I decided the way to get the boxes at work to handle the new DST is to create a new timezone.

This is what I used:

# Rule NAME FROM TO TYPE IN ON AT SAVE LETTER/S
Rule US 1967 2006 - Oct lastSun 2:00 0 S
Rule US 1987 2006 - Apr Sun>=1 2:00 1:00 D
Rule US 2007 max - Mar Sun>=8 2:00 1:00 D
Rule US 2007 max - Nov Sun<=7 2:00 1:00 S
# Zone NAME GMTOFF RULES/SAVE FORMAT [UNTIL]
Zone US/Central-New -6:00 US C%sT

The pre-2007 part is lifted from an old tzdata source file, and is just so that the system will know that DST isn't in effect yet.

Now fingers crossed, these old production servers will have the correct time in March.... &#58;&#62;&#62;

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
