    Remember that the US goes back one hour on Sunday!

    Yay, more sleep!

    I can't remember the last time I manually adjusted a clock for daylight savings :eek: I'm all digital now.

    Same here, mostly. Most of our clocks adjust automatically, but we still have to manually adjust our stove, microwave, heat pump thermostat, and car clocks.

    Edit: And the non-digital clock I have in my bedroom above my closet.

    You posted this a bit late. The UK changed from BST to GMT at 2AM on Sunday...

    He's referring to the upcoming change in the US.

    Sunday? I usually find myself having to do this at least once a day..

    Sometimes I find myself in these odd positions and just can't take the pain anymore (and need a subtle adjustment), or my man panties start doing the most inconvenient things...

    Oh ... CLOCKS!

    Carry on, nothing to see here! (y)

    Also a great time to change the batteries in your smoke detector!

    This is something I brought up before and @Martok answered my questions awesomely, and I agreed with him that the time shouldn't jump forward or backward. If you did something yesterday at 11:30 PM, then you did something yesterday at 11:30 PM regardless if DST took place the following day. Forum software that automatically changes it to yesterday at 10:30 PM (if minus one hour) or today at 12:30 AM (if plus one hour) is incorrect. However, at the same time, when we go back an hour, there are going to be many oddities.

    For example, Eastern time just went back an hour a few minutes ago, and to test something, I temporarily changed my time zone to Eastern on another forum (could have just viewed the forum as a guest, but meh). This person has Eastern time, but...
