We are supposed to "spring forward" at 2:00 AM. I wish they would leave it alone, maybe go 30 minutes and call it good!!

What was the purpose of changing the dates on this anyway?

Personally, I wish they would just quit doing it altogether...its hard enough for me to get out of bed in the mornings now!

Strange Times...

Woke up this morning and MY laptop had the correct time, but no lil window telling me it had changed. My wife's laptop is an hour off.

It get's weirder though... We have this lil "weather station" sitting on the kitchen counter. It tells date and time, inside temp and humidity, and outside temp.

My wife tells me (I haven't verified yet) that this device shows the correct time. This is a battery powered thingy, not connected to anything. We got it in a christmas grab bag... Christmas of 2005!

The operating system is set for a certain date and without the patch to change the date i the OS it won't automatically update for 3 more weeks.

Daylight Saving Time happened 2 or 3 weeks early this year. If your not up to date on your patches your computer will Spring forward at the normal time.

I believe they are working towards leaving it at daylight savings for good. I think moving it up 3 weeks is part in preperation for that...at least so i have heard.
Wouldn't that be nice, during the energy crunch years ago we went to DST and stayed that way, never should have switched back... The real reason is to conserve energy cause of more daylight. Since the orig studys that prompted the change new studys now say there will be no energy savings...

And don't forget that DST was extend an extra week on the far end. We fall back a week later than normal now...
