Abstract

In some countries, the clock is put forward or backward because the time that daylight is available differs during different seasons. Therefore people are used to changing the time in their wall clocks, wrist watches, and pagers. The problem this introduces in pagers is that all messages received, after the weather- man officially changes the time and before the user corrects his/her time, he/she has an incorrect time stamp and, perhaps, an incorrect date stamp.
