And hemmed in as we may be by the increasing mutness of the abstract, each man a victim of the iciest necessity, flung into nothingness, his ego flung to the winds -- it is the breath of the Absolute that sweeps across the world, and from our dim inklings and gropings for truth there will spring up the high-day and holiday assurance with which we shall know that every man has the divine spark in his soul and that our oneness cannot be forfeited; unforfeitable the brotherhood of humble human creatures, from whose deepest anguish there shines unforfeitable and unforfeited the anguish of a divine grace, the oneness of all men, gleaming in all things, beyond all Space and all Time; the oneness in which all light has its source and from which there springs the healing of all living things -- symbol of a symbol, image of an image, emerging from the destiny that is sinking in darkness....

In 2007, Daylight Savings Time (DST) was moved forward 3 weeks in the Spring. Many computer programs threatened to show the wrong time unless patched. It was a kind of mini-Y2k. The potential consequences were less serious; but the data processing community was less prepared. E.g.: Just 3 days before the new DST was to go into effect, Sun Microsystems was hit with panicked problem reports from customers and had to issue a hasty alert: Sun Alert 102836: Olson TZ Incompatibility Issues. (See question from one industry newsletter, below.)
