DST-don't set your clock back!!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Has anyone heard about this yet? I just saw it on the news! Those of us that set our clocks back one hour on the last Sunday in October are now supposed to set them back the first Sunday in November! I'm glad I checked the news this morning!!

I'm surprised the news hasn't made a bigger deal out of this during the weekend. I haven't heard anything or much of anything, but the only reason I knew was due to the DST updates for Windows back in February.

They also said that if you have a calendar that was printed more than a year ago (when they decided to extend DST), that your calendar would be wrong.

Personally, I'm glad they did change it to after Halloween. Parents won't let their kids out after dark, and after DST that meant they would be out before I even got home from work. I want to see the cute costumes too!

I hope my computer's Calnique calender program has the right date. It's today, right?

Nope DST ends next week.

I personally think they just need to get rid of it. We do this every year and it still confuse us

Yes I know we aren't supposed to change it till this coming Saturday night. I gave our paster a note to read for the congregation to remind them to change the clocks next week, so no one shows up at the wrong time for church

He (the pastor) didn't know till I told him

Well, here in Australia we just set our clocks forward an hour!

I really miss that hour of sleep!

I hope that my computer 'knows' that it's not until next week. Windows usually does it automatically. And sadly, my Calnique program hasn't been updated. I guess I'll have to write to them so they would update a patch for that.

We did that a few weeks ago. Interesting.

I haven't seen that on the news either! How do people without cell phones get anywhere on time during these confusing DST times??!!!?? I love the cell phones, you can just forget ALL about DST and still be ok!
