DST Headaches

[ #32608 ]
As if patching every computer in our infrastructure wasn't enough, we had to run special scripts to 'fix' our Outlook calendars because the DST change has really confused them. It boggles my mind that we run something supported by a company the size of M$ and they can't make this a simple patch update.

On top of all that, the script we had to run messed up my handy-dandy perl script that pulls calendar events out of Exchange and puts them in iCal for me. I originally found it here: vcalxical

So I got to spend the last hour hacking away at that script to weed out all the malformed data the M$ script put in my calendar events. Sheesh. As if I don't have better things to do. I really wish there was a way to charge back to M$ all the time we lose because of their substandard software. Can't someone put out something to replace Exchange? When will Chandler be done?
