Atomic Clocks

Lately, when I've needed to replace a clock, I've gone with the "atomic" type that adjust themselves. But I still have a bunch of the old style that I will have to change manually. sad I always seem to forget one somewhere and find it a day or two later.

The only clock I have that doesn't change on its own is in my car, will have to remember to change it this weekend.

Ditto, I converted essentially all my watches/clocks to radio-controlled as well (plus solar-charged for watches) but I still have work to do with two of the clocks.

I live in AZ that's on Standard Time year round in a majority of the state.

But two of my "atomic" clocks are cheapies that won't let me select No DST. Consequently, for those two, I need to remember to change to Pacific Time during DST and return to the correct Mountain Time after DST ends. Now I need to remember to do this on Saturday night.

thanks

The clocks in my house and car auto correct themselves in about 5 months. Yes, that's right, I don't touch any of them grin

This has got to be a good thing

Setting Clocks

I remember to set all the clocks, but I have a big problem with my(brain)clock, it keeps wanting to go back to the 1970's. Oh by the way what is a smoke detector?

I think we should do away

I think we should do away with DST, it was started ,I think, originally for the farmers working in the fields. If you go by a farm at night, their tractor lights rival most airports. Besides my dog doesn't give a rats ass about DST, he needs to go out NOW

Oh well, extra hour of work.

I believe the reason for it now is...

...it saves energy costs. Though, see this article:

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=does-daylig...

It presents some interesting findings which suggest that the savings vary by state, and in some states, it actually wastes energy (though nationally it helps, on average).

Ah well...

Thanks for the reminder.....

I agree, we should do away with it completely. It is suppose to save energy (which it doesn't). It's just an annoyance which messes with our biological clock twice a year.
http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/robert-schlesinger/2009/...

By the way, farmers operate by the sun not some artificial time keeping machine. DST was never something done for farmers.

DST

Imagine all the "fun" that some states have had with those multiple times zones such as listed below:
" There are thirteen states in the USA that are divided into two time zones.
Oregon and Idaho are split between the Mountain and Pacific time zones. Nebraska, Kansas, Texas, North and South Dakota are divided between Central and Mountain time zones. Florida, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee are split between Eastern and Central time zones. Also, Alaska is split between the Alaska time zone and the Hawaii-Aleutian time zone."

If Daylight Savings Time saved energy then we should switch to DDST (Double-Daylight Savings Time) and save even more.

does the gps time change, or you got to change manualy? I do not remember?

Another way that you can check is just keep running the WebUpdater program with your device connected to the computer. When an update is available for your device, it will list the changes that have been made in that update. You can see there if the DST update is ready for your device.

Hate having to change all my clocks here. Seems every little knick knack has a clock in it.

Yes I agree. We should do away with daylight savings time and just keep one version all year long.

As long as doing away with the time change means we stay on DST all the time. That extra hour of daylight comes in handy year 'round.

- Phil

I appreciaed the extra hour of sleeing in this morning.

But honestly, I wish we would do away with this twice a year change too. Individuals/businesses/institution can change their business hours seasonally if they want to, don't need to change the clock.

Lucky in Arizona

I'm lucky to be in Arizona where we don't have to go through that time changing nonsense.

My new neighbors who just moved from New Jersey had a rude awakening this morning though. Most of their electronics (including a bedside alarm) automatically turned back an hour. They had to go through everything and move clocks back ahead and turn off the Daylight Saving feature.

say "Aye"

twisted I kind of like that idea of Daily DST instead of annual DST that I read about somewhere online (maybe it was in this forum but I can't find it now). You "spring forward" every day at 2 PM. That way you get to go home from work 1 hour sooner and enjoy an extra hour of daylight. You then "fall back" at 2 AM to get the hour back and enjoy that extra hour of sleep.

All in favor ... cool laugh out loud

I HATE Winter

Daylight Saving Time is not the problem! It's the fact that daylight hours shorten during the winter months. And even on sunny days it's cold crying

From November till April, I go to work in the dark and I drive home in the dark... and I hate it mad

And it ain't no better in Saskatchewan, where they ignore DST entirely.

No window in my office. I try to go outside for a few minutes to see the sun otherwise I miss it during the week.

Stay with DST

If DST is so great, why don't we just stay on it all the time. Think how much productivty would be gained by not having to reset all the clocks twice a year. smile

Love the atomic clocks

Now if only my microwave, stove and car would change automatically...

DST

I hear a lot of people complain about DST but I LOVE it. When it's summer and it stays light until 10:00 it's awesome. Now that it's changed back I get to get up when it's sort of light again for a while. I don't have any complaints about DST at all except.............

I wish people would learn that it's "Daylight Saving Time" and NOT "Daylight Savings Time". There is no extra "s". Sheesh...........

Better Check My Generator

Well time for a power failure, every time the clocks need to be changed we have a power failure either a week or so before or after so I get to do all the clock setting twice. Didn't have a pre change failure this year so I figure I'm do soon.

Jim...

Jim...

I've already checked mine, it works. Plus my alarm clocks all have battery backup to power them through the 40-45 seconds before the generator takes the load. The one good thing about digital TV is that my VCRs no longer work so I don't have to figure out how to set their clocks.

I couldn't agree more. I will have to admit that it made a bigger difference before I retired in September. I always hated to loose that hour of my weekend when we sprang ahead,

Maybe

They should change it by 30 minutes before they do away with it for good. smile
