When we adjust the time from summer-time to winter-time.
If you start yor solve that night at 2:59.59 the time whold be 2:xx.xx when you stop solving. Your solvingtime is start-stop time and will be negative.

so you start your solve at 1:59:59 and you end it at 1:00:24. due to the hour time change your solve is negative 59:36

How about doing a solve while flying East across the International Date Line? You could have a solve of about negative 23h 59m --s! :D
