    Meh. The only one I have to mess with that I read is my watch. The rest do it automatically.

    And, according to the timestamp on my post, it would appear that the forums have been set an hour forward.... weird.:confused:

    Timestamp: 12:46 AM
    Here, it's 11:46 PM
    If I were to set the clock back, it would be 10:46 PM

    It's the other way around for me; it's 8:10 here and the forum thinks it's 7:10.

    Edit: Actually, it's OK now, but it was wrong earlier today.

    The times are always changed at 2:00 AM, that is what time you are supposed to do it. I actually know of a few people who get up at 2:00 to set it back to 1:00.

    There is a business down the street with a huge sign. It shows promotions and the time. They changed the time on it earlier Sat morning, but they screwed up and set it an hour forward. All day today it was an hour ahead, now it's two hours ahead.

    Depressing darkness at the end of the work day. Can't we leave daylight savings in place all year?

    Going to work in the dark is worse.

    I had an alarm clock by my bed that would randomly change an hour behind and ahead during the year (not at DST). There was no way to actually set the time, it was supposed to get a reading from somewhere. There was a switch to change the time zone you were in and I had to make adjustments that way.

    One night, it buzzed like it was shorting out, and it displayed some kind of message on the screen. I was afraid it was summoning the mother ship since apparently the time had arrived for their revelation.

    I promptly threw it in the trash
    Not sure why I never did that before

    Unfortunately, there isn't enough sunlight hours in a day during winter to get to work and comeback with the sun in the sky.

    She would just hibernate ? There's nothing unnatural about getting up and going to work in the dark. Drink some OJ for your vitamin instead.

    What kind of job do you have that you get to go to work when it's no longer dark?!

    it screwed me up last night. I was working on a project for school and figured 2AM would be a good point to go to bed. Well I was working and getting tired. Look down at my clock on my computer and it said 1:10AM. I was really tired for 1AM but what ever I would keep working. 10 min later I look at my watch and it is after 2AM on it... The computer had updated and it screwed me up big time.

    Ah, finally it gets light early, and dark early. I dislike DST with a passion, I know it seems like eventually it'll be DST all year round, but it needs to go away forever. :p I <3 early light & dark. :cool:
