Well, if they're correctly designed they have a *rule* for the
change-over rather than a specific date (which would have to be
fiddled every year).

To add to the confusion, there's one county in Indiana that moved from
Eastern to Central last year and is moving back to Eastern this
weekend, which they will accomplish by not changing the clocks at
all.  (I pity the poor Windows users there....)
