BVLog Bryan Voss’ mental synchronization point


Red light, green light

One of our enterprise application vendors recommends the following procedure for Daylight Savings Time change:

On the first Sunday in November you need to shut down blah applications during the time change to avoid duplicate chart times.

Why don't we just go ahead and close the hospital for an hour to avoid duplicating any information?

Me: (Dumbfounded silence) That would be the number zero.

User: Ok, thanks!
