    | IT managers are feeling grumpy about Microsoft's preparations for
    | this year's early daylight-saving time. If anything, the situation
    | shines another glaring light on patch management problems, how long

    | getting their Blackberry servers and devices to sync up with
    | their DST-patched Exchange servers. Others, in spite of Microsoft
    | warnings to apply DST patches in a specific order, are running
    | into problems because they are attempting to patch Exchange

    They only put the effin' things out once a month now! It's bad enough
    that they leave their "customers" (aka "marks") vulnerable for long
    periods while they "test" their crapware patches. Can't they even get
    it right with a whole month to check the damned thing?
