    I know this has a limited audience, but just wondering, "who forgot to set your clock back?"

    Anything interesting happen because of it?
    Did you show up early somewhere?

    Its usually not as bad as in the Spring, when you would be late to something.

    Maybe you remembered this time because you forgot in the past.
    Any stories from the past about when you forgot?

    I got up an hour too early. :rolleyes:
    Oh well, just an extra hour lying on the sofa as opposed to lying in bed

    SPRING forward
    FALL back

    Or so the saying goes!

    Most people enjoy the extra hour of sleep, but it can be disruptive to the routine either way.

    I got pretty freaked out. My phone syncs automatically and I was coming home from drinking with my friends at a bar. I looked at my phone and it said 1:45. Awesome, I didn't want a very late night, exams are coming up. So, I brush my teeth, garb a drink and get into bed. Look at the phone again because someone's sent me a message and it's 3:15! Ahh! Why did it take a little over an hour to brush my teeth! I'd had enough drinks to have to think about it for a while before I worked out what was happening. :eek:

    Or you can remember it by always setting the clock towards Summer. :)

    So did I - but we were meant to here!

    Wasn't just one clock... I had trouble working out all the different places I have a time indicator:
    3 clocks
    1 x radio /alarm clock
    3 x watches
    2 x mobile phones (1 x pers, 1 x work)
    home phone / answering machine
    television
    Digital STB (with PVR)
    Stereo
    2 x iPods (ok I did my nano - haven't done my 3G 40GB one yet)
    digital camera
    microwave
    oven
    car

    phew! The only place I didn't have to change time - was on my Powerbook!

    The iPod's clock should sync with the computer's clock next time you plug it in. :)

    I remembered - thanks to clayj's thread - but it is almost a moot point here. The kids get up early, and whether "early" is technically an hour earlier today doesn't really matter. ;)

    Plus, yeah, it's nice that many of the modern devices here (like the Macs, as mentioned!) set themselves automatically.

    OK, I'm really hoping some people have noticed the sarcasm dripping from my original post. I'm in the southern hemisphere, it's hot, humid and far from winter.

    Sort of, the "spring forward" forward part works (mind you it sure doesn't feel like bloody spring, it's about 21 degrees - not too bad at all until you figure in the 99% humidity and total lack of breeze. It was 30 degrees the other night at 11pm so it's certainly getting towards summer.

    "Fall back?" Nup, doesn't work here, "Autumn Back" just doesn't sound right...

    I set mine last night before going to bed. So I would get an hour of sleep more on Sunday morning.

    In the past... I've showed up to work an hour early (love retail, really do... :rolleyes: ) and my whole family and I showed up to church early as well. Couldn't figure out why the doors were locked and there were no other cars in the lot. :p

    Done that one before. Right now my wife is training at scout camp. They skip the Daylight Savings Time.

    Not this year, but last year or the year before, my family walked into church as father was walking back down the isle. We were very confused. :eek:

    Arrived at a concert an hour early and could not figure out why the doors were still locked and why there was no crowd.

    Another time was when I was going to Half Price Bookstore, arrived an hour early only to find out that they were still closed.

    I surely didn't forget. I had to get my future brother-in-law to the airport this morning. He is going home to Hawaii (and is probably the only one that is sad to be going there).
