I did, but being a 3rd shifter my "body clock" is always screwed up come the weekends. So in that case, what's the difference between 3:15 and 4:15 AM? I'm up anyway. :D

I forgot. Just realized when I turned on the computer.

Yeah same here. It was the difference between watching "International Poker tour" or "Cheaters" All late-late night programming is crap anyway.

The only confusion we had was last week trying to remember when the change was happening. My daughter actually called me from college to ask because her roommates TV had changed last weekend - I guess it has a chip that was programmed for the old dates.

Every time change I tell my wife that we have to wait until 2:00am to change the clocks, but don't worry, I'll get up to do that. She falls for it every time...what's that say about how dumb she must think I am? ;)

I just assumed everyone got up at 2:00am and changed their clocks and watches. I don't get the "dumb" comment, traderumor.







:D

I turned on the tv this morning and it had the correct time. I have been relying on that as my only correct clock today, since I'm too lazy to go around the house and reset them.

At our house, Mrs. U resets all of the easy clocks and I do all of the difficult/obscure ones (phones, computers, thermostats, water softener, etc.). She reset all of "hers" last night. I have only reset a couple of mine.

One of my "difficult" clocks is an analog wall clock that sets itself to a radio time signal. We've had the thing about 10 years and it has always adjusted itself appropriately for time changes... until today. Since it's a drag to reset the thing manually, I'm giving it another day or two to figure out its mistake. ;)

Not me.

Have a flight in about 20 mins back to New England from CMH. Can't forget to change clocks for these kind of events.

I forgot. It caused me to miss church for the 1,144th consecutive week.

No forgetting here, but the "extra" hour of sleep is not worth going to 20 different clocks and resetting them.

Abolish DST.

You guys had it easy. Thankfully the computer had the right time.

Three people here and no one could agree who's on first, what's on second let alone decide if it was the right time to change the clocks back. A behavorial scientist would not have been able to figure out what our groups problem was over a simple time change. :bang:

Needless to say I am up for adoption if you happen to need another tax deduction. :eek:

Yeah, my DVD/VCR player changed last weekend as well. So it was annoying but around Wednesday it switched itself back. The time on it is somehow tied into the cable feed because the time only comes up when I have the cable plugged in. So I expected it would change over last night but it's now an hour fast instead of an hour slow, I just hope it will figure itself out again because I have no idea how to set it. Thankfully my cell phone adjusts automatically for DST and time zones so it's about the only clock I ever fully trust.

Time is but a spatial metaphor.

My wife and youngest's alarm clocks are self-adjusting. They are some atomic things that synch off 3 satellites. I'm afraid to get near them, they might be radioactive or something.

It really is amazing how many electronic and mechanical devices around the house keep time,

I had to get up at 7 AM the next morning, so I remembered. I set the clock at 11:30 PM.

Keep DST all year round, I say.

And this conflicts with your regular daily schedule how? :D

I get off work at 7:oo AM. Last week I walked oput into darkness. Now there is light. It gives the feeling that spring is right around the corner. It is weird. As a hoosier, the adjustment knobs on my clocks just gathered dust for years.

Someday, all of my household clocks and other devices will have wireless network cards and they'll synch off a time server so I don't have to manually set all this.

However, that will also give some Internet nerd access to my toaster who will hack my toast settings to burnt.

Everytime the power goes off and I have to reset my alarm clock, I wonder why the heck this product hasn't been invented/marketed yet.

My cellphone gets the time off a server. My computer does the same.

How hard could it be?

That's why I like the cell phone.....I don't have to remember...it does it on its own!

Our alarm clocks have simple backup batteries (2 AA's) in case we lose power. ;)
