Daylight Saving Time

This weekend, server time will change to daylight saving time. On Sunday, 14th of March 02:00 EST becomes 03:00 EDT. Please take note of this change, especially if your part of the world does not change clocks this weekend (it appears that only North and Central America are changing). The "date" command on FICS always shows the current server time; please note that game forum clocks do not always adjust to DST changes at the precise time of the change.

European players should note that Europe begins DST in two weeks, on March 28th, which will affect round 7 games (and possibly delayed round 6 games).

Also, sorry for spamming four messages in everyone's game forums!
