Jordan remains on Summer Time

Simple and short if you have some business with Jordan and/or have computers or servers running in that country:

Jordan’s government has canceled the switch from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time this year. The Middle Eastern country was originally set to turn the clocks back 1 hour on Friday, October 26, 2012. However, with the new decision made on Wednesday, October 24, Jordanians will remain on Daylight Saving Time (DST), which is UTC+3.

What to do if your computers are running on Microsoft Windows?  Waiting for next, probably out-of-band “DST cumulative update” release from Microsoft.  Here is a capture from MS Jordan on Facebook, they call it hotfix.
