>As Masayasu Ishikawa reminded me, this weekend Europe switches to daylight

>daylight savings time in the US (until 26th October), calls will be one hour
>earlier in Japan.

>Of course, this weekend, daylight savings *ends* in Australia, which means
>that calls will be one hour *earlier* next week, and then *two* hours
>earlier (Right?)
