March is upon is the DST patchin' time!

For those not in the is time to patch your windows OS for the new Daylight Savings Time (DST). You have one of two options...go to Microsoft's site and download it orrrrrrrrr you can go to InteliAdmin to download the fix from them. The cool thing with the InteliAdmin tool is that it will tell you if you are patched already, just in case you got patched via Windows Update or just unsure. The other benefit to the latter is that you don't have to go through that extra step of the validation process Microsoft has put up. It is this immense distrust that Microsoft has against ALL of the Microsoft users out there that that went into making the validate to addition to this they went and added a WGA update that operates in such a way that you cannot even update your freakin' RAM without having to re-validate. I was on the side of Microsoft until they went and screwed the legit users with WGA. Anyhow...links below for both varieties.
