So being in Switzerland, it means it will be twice as expensive as anywhere else!

Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST) ... clocks change

If you still see an incorrect time displayed, try changing the time settings here:

ensuring the setting to be automatic and then log off and login again.

Reminder: Daylight Savings

Just a reminder that last night was the change over to daylight savings time in Europe and we got an extra hour. I believe in North America it will come next weekend.

Keep it in mind for any business meetings or overseas calls.
