OK.....so where the heck am I?

Day light saving time

Fortunately, this year I remembered to set the time ahead.

Thank you

Thanks for the website. I always dread the days I have to change all our collection clocks around the house and my collection of watches. I have close to 50 clocks and watches to change twice a year. I sure wish we didn't have daylight savings in California.

Yikes!

And here I was being annoyed that I had to change 7 clocks and watches. smile

that's why I use cellphones and atomic radio clocks that set themselves... no need for manual changes.

thermostat too

One that I used to forget to change was the house heater thermostat which is program able to raise and lower at times I've chosen.

The one I forgot this year was my auto-on-off light timer

Thanks but I have mostly LaCrosse "Atomic Clocks" around the house. They reset themselves automatically & even correct themselves during the year to assure superb accuracy. They are tied to a signal from the Feds (NBS?) that makes it possible.

Good to see you up and about, John. grin

I got all our clocks set ahead yesterday morning... until my wife finds the one I missed. wink

There are some documented health risks that come with the change.

Different clocks

Some of our clocks change automatically, some have to be changed manually, and some (which are older) have to be changed manually then changed manually again in a couple of weeks because they use the old date for DST changes. In our truck we just never change the time and use our watches.

What a pain!

change everything?

Also good reminder to change batteries for smoke detectors, monocarbon dioxide detectors, air filters..

Worst day of the year

This is the worst day of the year, all day I wonder how the day has disappeared so quickly every time I look at a clock.

Now I have a week of work jetlagged and showing up late, thanks daylight savings!

Why change the time?

We should just keep the time the same or improvise a 30 adjustment, then just leave it alone.

From Facebook

When told the reason for daylight savings time the Old Indian said, “Only the Government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket.”

Twice-yearly ritual...

Go through the house changing the time on certain clocks. The "atomic" wall clocks, the HDTVs and associated boxes, and the computers all take care of themselves. The clock in the phone system takes its time from incoming calls (sent as part of Caller-ID).

My two favorites are wind-up clocks, one an old Seth-Thomas mantle clock that's around 120 years old, the other a Regulator-style wall clock. They get extra TLC.

And there's one that's a pain. It's the large clock (display, really) connected to my Stratum 1 NTP server, which provides accurate time and frequency references to computers and test equipment. The NTP server also generates a time signal for driving displays, but it has to be adjusted twice yearly for the daylight savings time offset.

Which means looking up on Evernote what the particular incantation is (I only do it twice a year), connecting to the NTP server via TELNET, making the change (the displays change instantly), and checking the health of the NTP server.

Oh, I also go around checking batteries in smoke detectors, replacing HVAC filters, and such mundane (but important) home maintenance tasks.

When you own a home, always things to do, daylight savings or not!

I hate resetting the clocks

Have one clock that automatically adjusts but from before they changed the date of DST, so I need to manually change and then change again when it changes back. What a pain

Like pkdmslf, I live in AZ as well. We don't need to change our time. We love it.

Yeah!

You Arizonans certainly don't need another hour of hot summer sunshine ... wouldn't want to damage the cacti! razz wink

Reminds me of the story (urban legend I think) about the elderly lady back in the 70's when DST was expanded because of the energy crisis. She called in to her local radio talk show, complaining that the extra hour of sun from the new government daylight savings time policy was killing her house plants. laugh out loud

But Verizon...

Living in Arizona, I shouldn't see any change. But Verizon changed the clock on my smart phone Monday morning. They know where I am, why don't they learn (had same problem as last year, where all my appointments got modified, but that's another rant on another thread...)

atomic

I have three atomic clocks and one atomic wrist watch which makes it easier but I wish they would pick one setting or the other and leave it alone.

If my computer is slow, is this clock still right?

All set

What a pain! I'm going to get some atomic clocks before we have to "Fall Back". Arizona has the right idea...same time all year.

Who should we petition to get this outdated procedure changed?
