My office is located in the American Tobacco Historic District. Every day at noon and again at 3:30 they sound the whistle, just as they did in the nineteenth and early to mid-twentyth century when this was a working tobacco factory.

Every day until today that is. Today, it goes off at 11 and then at 2:30. Took a minute to realize that it was the wrong time (usually I dont even hear it) and then to figure out that whatever software drives the whistle must still be set to use the old daylight savings time rules.

Wonder how long it take sthem to get it fixed….
