Daylight Savings Time might be permanent? Your legacy systems might be in trouble.

So Congress voted to make Daylight Savings Time permanent.

 Last time the DST changed Microsoft got caught with its pants down.  Actually they were completely off and their underwear was dirty -- but who needs to remember that?

Well, actually we all do now -- because if you've got a legacy system -- and SOMEBODY keeps reading on our blog about Exchange 2007... you might need to do some legerdemain on your data to keep it working.

OR if you're migrating from a legacy system into Office 365 you are going to be facing problems.

If it's BIG for you -- drop us a line.

We did this before.

Aloha-oe to TravelTime

Per the fine, fine folks in Redmond:

Upcoming, we will be retiring the preview program enabling REST API access to on-premises mailboxes for Hybrid Exchange organizations.

Note: This will impact those who write code against Exchange mailboxes.

Key points

  • Timing: Beginning early March 2023, we will begin to return errors for any requests made for mailboxes that remain on-premises.
  • Action: Use Microsoft Graph for Exchange Online and Exchange Web Services (EWS) for Exchange Server on-premises
  • Roll-out: tenant level


Travel Time uses REST API so it's going to start giving you return errors.

Sorry, folks, we had some fun making it and we hope you had some useful times with it.
