Daylight Saving Time is just around the corner and if you’re like me, you aren’t looking forward to “losing” an hour and getting up earlier.

The IBM i falls into that category of making the DST transition automatically, but it hasn’t always been that easy.

If your answer is, “That’s simple! Just divide the year by 4 and if there is no remainder, it’s a leap year,” you would be right…most of the time. But there’s more to it than that.
