Those of you who think the blog bug is being neutralized in one Laura Gekeler, think again… I will be here.
You haven’t heard from me because we have a number of open support tickets of a serious (to us) nature. Last week I even missed the VistaSWAT call which I knew would discuss this DST hotfix topic, but I was engaged in tracking down an SCT Banner / Bb Vista sync problem …another posting.
So what’s up with this DST time issue? We have a Support Bulletin released Jan. 29th telling us there’s a Hotfix release candidate for Daylight Savings problems. A release candidate? Three weeks from the event horizon? You’ve got to be kidding. Blackboard… come on!
I am NOT installing a release candidate in production. I am NOT installing a release candidate in development and believing I can then jump to the final release for installation into production. Hello?
Why are we even dealing with daylight savings time again?
What are other DST symptoms in your environments? I see this one where assignments set up now which are due on March 9th get assigned a due time an hour later than what you set it, as opposed to assignments on this side of the date shift. I have to assume this occurs in other date sensitive tools as well.
The calendar tool has its own problems in addition to daylight savings.
