    That Time Again...

    Well, at "half-past-four" this morning on ABC News Radio the "half-past-FIVE" music came on.
    - How I found out we had switched to Daylight Saving Once they'd announce it
    for weeks in advance, then they went to days, then "tonight", now... - You find out 6 months
    later when you change the clocks back that you had been on DST all the while

    It's my job for this morning. Cars, clocks, cameras, pool equipment, home phones, some TV equipment, stove and microwave don't self-adjust.

    JK. Once I had the same routine, then "over the years" I found that "more and more of our things"
    adjusted automatically. Now that just leaves three clocks and a microwave. - Oh, also two cars.
    But there's no hurry for them, as I'm used to adding/subtracting an hour. I usually get around to
    doing them "after a while", when I bother to look in the manuals to remind me how each time
    However, I don't want to live in a "smart house", where just about everything is automated

    It takes me a day or two to adjust, so I change all my clocks early. Got home Friday night and I went ahead and adjusted everything. i am fairly much synced now. Whereas if I do it Sunday morning, it screws my bodyclock up for Monday and work.

    I gave up, and leave the clocks on daylight saving time year round. Means for six months of the year I get a pleasant surprise to find it's earlier than I thought! It's surprising how many other people do the same, so I'm wary of looking at the time in other peoples homes. Never know if their clocks are real time or daylight saving time.

    Gazza, that's nuffin
    I remember seeing a Great British Railways episode some years ago (+/- DST) where "he"
    pointed out that until about mid-19th Century the British Isles had different times in the
    different counties, so that travelling from London to (say) Bristol took you through a few
    TZs, each being an odd amount different from the next and apparently based on local
    noon for the major town in the county. So even standard time was a canine's first meal
    of the day -- and worse, when would you serve it

    Something even scarier!
    I just flew from Vancouver to Sydney, and they stole a WHOLE DAY off me!

    We were flying along on Sunday night, and suddenly it was Tuesday! What happened to Monday!
    Although I suppose if you have to lose a day, Monday would be the best to lose!
