Logic would dictate you'd only need it for 6 months, surely?
I heard ITV advise viewers to put their clocks back an hour. It must have been chaos in the GMTV studio this morning.
I heard someone on the bus mention they'd forgotten clocks went back and so they were late. When the subject of the time came up, however, they did have the right time. Strange.
not about trying to divide the year in two
that it would be providing too much darkness when there should be light. I'd have said they need to go back in September. October is always a bad month for that stuff.
can the server time be updated please? It's confusing me.
Maybe the new software doesn't allow it?
should daylight savings time be extended to cover the whole year? <something about Scottish kids going to school in the dark>
We should always have GMT but in the winter time people should just get into work an hour later.
but I still got to work on time.
You're the fat guy who tries to steal the embryos aren't you?
the day when the sunrise is 12 hours before the sunset was actually 17th or march for example, and then you need to factor in dawn and dusk which are technically hours of daylight i believe.
in various other parts of the world, they put the clocks forward a few weeks ago, and seeing as how the sun has been rising close to 6 for a few weeks no, i see no reason for us to leave it until the first sunday after equinox.
not all at the same time tho. US went forward a few weeks ago.
i think theres only about 5 countries in the whole world that dont do it.
wikipedia has the answers somewhere.
i first noticed this whilst sat at home alone on saturday evenings as a child, flicking through the german channels, wondering why i couldn't knock off as early as normal
