Summer Time

Postby Tonyblack » Sun Mar 31, 2013 11:32 am

I'm sure you've all changed you clocks this morning (or like me, last night), but you might want to change the Board Clock as well. This is the device that tells you when a post was made.

To do that click this link.

Go to the section that says: "Summer Time/DST is in effect:"

Click "yes" and "submit".

That's all. :)

The UK has daylight saving time? :|
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Not in Queensland, anyway. We know what it is. We just don't care. :?

Oddly enough, the State of Arizona doesn't change its clocks. I think all the other US states do. And the US states put their clocks forward three weeks ago.

This map shows where daylight savings is observed. :)

Blue = Daylight Savings observed
Yellow = Daylight Savings formerly observed
Red = Daylight Savings never observed.

There's no yellow bits. All there is is red, blue...and orange... :think:

:roll: Ok, if you want to be picky. I thought it was more yellow than orange. But if it looks orange on your screen, then that's what I mean by yellow. :lol:

Sooo...there is now a different difference between the countries that have summer time and those that don't? So let's say there was a time difference of an hour between two countries, and one did change their clocks and the other didn't then there's no difference now because the one caught up with the other? :shock: time zones messed up! All really confusing to me :?
