Wow, it’s been a productive week: two new posts! Previously I wrote about the role of nascent daylight saving time in a labor dispute in Canada a century ago. Now I’ve written about subjects nearer and dearer to my heart: writing localized datetime code and the esoterica of the IANA time zone database.
I’m taking a break from writing for a while. The next post after that will be about the history of — and current software bugs caused by — daylight saving time policies that change the clocks at exactly midnight. 🕰
