I know the project's been through plenty of these over the years but I'm curious to see what happens in terms of how the client handles the time-change at 1am tomorrow morn... How are processing times affected if at all?

they appear not to be affected after all a minute is a minute no matter wither it is BST or GMT.

They use the O/S calls to convert time, so as long as the O/S does it correctly, it isn't an issue it is an automatic.
