[maemo-developers] Impact on 770/N800 Software on DST change in the US?

here is the url to a www page that does a test using javascript of 
whether or not your device is patched for the DST changes:


I have tested it on patched and unpatched Microsoft windows systems and 
it seems to work. Interestingly when I run it on the N800 Opera browser 
it seems to think that everything is okay. I checked the source and  the 
javascript invokes a time/date function and analyzes the results to 
determine whether the system is or is not up to date for this change.

Best Regards,
