Despite the theme of my novel, today I find nothing amusing about date-and-time-related software errors

I’d love to post something about the series finale of The Wire, but I can’t, because I haven’t seen it yet. Why? Because someone at Time Warner Cable thought a swell way to handle Daylight Saving Time would be to shift the times of all the shows an hour ahead. Meaning that although I programmed my DVR on Friday to record The Wire on Sunday, it started recording at 10:00, which by that time was actually 10:00.

Thank you, Time Warner Cable!
