Don't forget to set your clocks ahead.
I love this time of the year! Long summer evenings ahead!
cheers and thanks for the reminder
daylight savings time is so weird. and talk about the worst night to lose an hour of sleep. got out of work an hour ago, back to work in 8...
Ha, good that I saw this thread. I just noticed an hour difference between my computer and desk clock and thought I was tripping out
I just thought of the but everyone who uses you iPhone as an alarm clock make sure you have a back up because you know apple will screw it up yet again.
I'm in the same boat, I close every saturday night (not leaving until 12 AM), and then go home to sleep and shower and get right back to work at 6:30 AM. I'm so wound up from work I can never really get much sleep, last time we set our clocks it was awesome, but this time it just sucks and it takes my body a long time to adjust to the difference.
My alarm clock has an atomic clock and my phone and computer will automatically adjust themselves. I have an analog watch with a ringer in it just so I can check the time on my other devices and make sure they set themselves correctly.
Is that just for the US or for everyone? I never understand the time changes.
Love summer evenings.
Different times for different places. Here in NSW daylight savings time runs from the 1st Sunday in October and ends on the first Sunday in April.
We're about to get our hour back, can't wait.
It's Sunday 27th March for the UK.
Yes, but it's hell on all the Drive in movie theaters.
Those still exist? All the ones in Colorado went bankrupt.
Damn, I missed breakfast and church.
I lied about church.
Hope no one lost any sleep.
Are we actually going to do the whole two hours thing this year?
Nope, I lose day, not sleep.
Please remind what the advantage of Daylight Savings Time is? I remember someone told me something about old technology but I can't remember.
Dammit - I'm late for work! Your thread failed me, ucfgrad93 - FAILED ME!
Not this year (if ever).
Since all the excitement in the middle east and Japan, it does seem to have been dropped rather from the news.
So the sun doesn't come up at 4am in the summer. It just makes sense to push it forward an hour, have the sunrise start around 5, and then sun sets at 9 instead of 8. I dont know about you, but I'd much rather have the extra hour of light in the evening rather than the middle of the night. Hence "daylight savings".
That does make sense I guess. Not what someone told me before.
To increase productivity.
You're more productive when the sun is out, so in order to make workers more productive, some guy devised this way to make the day "longer" (Or rather, the sun is out during normal day-time instead of the night).
Glad to be of service!
