If the TNS clock is static, then yes, I think so too!

hang On !!...I'm assuming the TNS clock is static !!...so......although we go back an hour...the TNS clock (already being an hour fast)...will then become two hours fast !!

No,.... because it will also go back and hour still remaining 1 hour fast! Well wait..

What do you mean by Static?

I see, so if it doesn't reset itself then indeed it will be two hours ahead!

In 2007: Sunday 28 October

At 1 am (01:00) GMT on the last Sunday in October, clocks move back by one hour to end the period of British Summer Time.

i'm wondering if it didn't happen because we moved the clocks forward earlier this year. most computer/automatic clock changing devices over here didn't do it until the old clock moving time, so i had to manually reset my alarm clock and phone and then a few weeks later i was an hour early for everything and realized that they had also set themselves forward when they thought they should have
