    We did it Saturday gone! It's about time we stopped all this now, I think it causes more problems than it cures!

    Yep is it worth it? :rolleyes: Years ago, I bought 2 Brookstone clock radios for the bedrooms mainly because they 'automatically' changed the hour for DST; unfortunately, the dates of the changes were stored inside the clock (like on ROM) and could not be changed, so when the country decided to pick different dates, we have to set the clocks twice - went back automatically a few days ago, so had to reset and then will need to again (using the time zone button) - maybe I need an iPod clock radio that will pick up the atomic clock signal? Are those available? :)

    I prefer to wait it out. I did not change them last year, so at last, they will be correct.

    Bob. You are a trip, My Dear.

    IF you did indeed wait it out ~ would you be an hour early or late for everything?

    Yes, but people expect me to be late. Anything that will not tolerate my personal time schedule is not worth the bother.

    I'm so glad you are here! Guys ~ Darkstar is a moderator with me at our iPhone site! He has as many posts there as I have here, I think.

    Better not forget to change your clock....

    Silly billies! I think this clock setting business is ridiculous. The times have changed and if it's dark, get a torch. I know all the reasons but to be quite honest, most are obsolete.

    There's a neat pun in there. Nice.

    Time zones are confusing enough without daylight saving. Some businesses in BC run on Alberta time so that they are keeping the same schedule as their offices in Calgary. I never know what time it is any more.

    I agree! I see no point. And I would have forgotten if I didn't see this thread!
