Remembering those dim and distant Uni. lectures inclines me to think Bones
is right.  Dates are hard-wired from a core date with Windoze etc. having a
look-up table for buried somewhere among it's dll's which is used for time

Only the OS on my system. BIOS seems to be a fixed value.

Subject: [jhb_airlines] BIOS clock quirk

A few months ago I upgraded one of my PCs, including new mobo. Everything

Some days ago I became aware that the clock on my Win2K setup was an hour
slow.  It took a couple of resets before it twigged that the BIOS clock must
have gone back by an hour - I checked and confirmed this to be the case.  I
wonder whose summer time adjustment happens in September? - Taiwan maybe, if
the mobo was made there.  Come to think of it, does the BIOS clock usually
reset for summer time changes, or is it only the O/S clock?
