darn it.  I forgot to fix my automagic recordings for day light savings.
To add more tinder,  I recently re-installed windoz and she messed with my
hardware clock.

So with some research,  I've created two reg edit files for windows7 one to
cause windows to use UTC in the hardware clock
and the other to clear that setting.  I confess I have not tested the clear

I suggest that you create a restore point before making any registry

Use windowz notepad and copy the following text excluding the first and
last lines and then use save as
to save the files as ANSII using the .reg extension

click on them to execute.  you will have to re-boot to see the results

---------------Enable Windows to use Hardware clock set to
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


------------Disable using hardware clock set to
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Seems to be happy
