questionsdo you turn your clocks tonight or do you spend…

Set them all in the morning. I don't have the automatic change set on any, except the ones that are connected to the net. And spending the next week feeling slightly lagged.

They need to quit this time change thing.

I generally change the ones that won't fix themselves before I go to bed, but this time I think I'll wait till tomorrow because I'm sick with the flu and don't have the energy.

I've already changed most of them. I did that this morning, and did the car clock this afternoon, when I met friends for lunch (yes, I actually have friends). I have clocks in about half the rooms, and then there's all that low tech stuff (like the clock on the microwave) that needs changing. I'd just rather do it after coffee and breakfast, at my leisure, instead of waking up confused and disoriented tomorrow.

Some of my computers are still on older DST, and I'll update the dates manually if it bothers me, or else wait until they change at whatever time they think they should. Most of them respond to a quick rdate, and two of them are local time servers, so it's both easier, and yet more complicated than it might be for some. Actually, I suppose I should just set up a crontab for the older ones that would run at 2:10AM and then not worry about it.

So it goes.

@okham: I completely agree on not doing it anymore! Especially with kids, it takes a whole week (thats if I'm lucky) to get everyone in snyc with the time for bedtime and school.

@shrdlu: You have time for friends AND still maintain a black triangle??

vote-for24vote-against

@thepacezoo: I point out that I make almost no effort (other than coincidental) to maintain a black triangle. I ask a question on the rare occasion that I actually want answers, and feel like the Deals audience will provide good ones (I got some great answers on my new to selling on eBay question, for example). I vote up good comments, and questions that I like, and once in a while, I'll vote up deals from people that I like.

I seldom post deals. Whether or not I have a black triangle is unimportant to me.

Post good deals. Ask good questions. Vote up good comments, good deals, and good questions. Tattle on duplicates, expired deals, and spam.

It's a bright and beautiful world out there. Go for a walk. Check for signs of Spring. My crocus are all up, and the daffodils, forsythia, hyacinth, and the rest of the Spring crowd are right behind them.

{Yes, I know you were joking in your comment. :-D}

oh crap. is it time to fiddle with the frackin' clocks again? I swear we just did it.

vote-for6vote-against

Actually do both. The alarms get set back Saturday night but there are always clocks we find on Sunday that get fixed...and some that are missed until Monday.

I have one in my office that is still set from last time, never "fell back" with it and tomorrow it'll be right again.

Not certain why we didn't fix it.

Hope everyone remembers to check/change batteries in all your smoke alarms too!!

vote-for6vote-against

@shrdlu: Yes it is getting nicer by the day. My Pear Trees and my Sweet Olive are blooming. We just started our Sunflower seeds a few days ago. Although, it's about 40 out there now and dropping to 30. Can't wait for Spring!!

vote-for5vote-against

The only clock I have to worry about is my alarm clock, and I'll reset that before I leave for work in a little bit (thanks for the reminder). Everything else will reset on its own, so I don't have to worry about that. The only thing that will be weird is that our time clocks at work automatically update, so there's a time frame that we can't touch it without messing up our hours for the night. It also means that I get to stay an hour "later" than normal. Fun times, fun times.

vote-for5vote-against

@videowallart: funny you should mention that since I came back to ask this: for the states that don't do daylights saving, does that mean that they are an hour behind their neighboring states for half the year?

vote-for6vote-against

@eijisama: Or an hour closer, but yes actually, that is what happens.

DST is useless, a relic of days when candles were expensive. It has no need, and the changing dates just messed things up. I would much rather most states just ignore it.

As for setting my clocks, no. I don't, I actually just leave them and just myself. (Hey, clock says 7 ... better get ready to be somewhere by 7..).
I stopped adjusting my clocks when Bush changed the days, and I no longer cared to look at when the new ones were.

vote-for8vote-against

Daylight Saving time annoys me.

Regardless, I'll reset my alarm clock tonight when I go to bed (probably anyway... if not, I'll get up an hour later tomorrow).

The stove and microwave will get reset tomorrow, as will the car. The computers should reset themselves. Everything else either stays on standard time or is not currently running (eg. the cuckoo clock).

Though I should go check the clock on the heating system, as it's likely that the super forgot to do it and I forgot to ask him when I saw him earlier; otherwise my early rising neighbors will wake up to colder than expected rooms in the morning.

I neglected to change my clocks in the fall, so I'm looking forward to my clocks being right again tomorrow!

vote-for6vote-against

I do nothing because I'm in Arizona, of which most does not observe DST. (The Navajo reservation does, but the Hopi reservation inside it doesn't. Yes, it gets confusing.)

I do have to remember that the east coast is now 3 hours later rather than 2.

vote-for4vote-against

Already done (except for the cars)

vote-for5vote-against

There was a reminder on the 11PM news, and I did them all with the exception of those that will do themselves. I love watches and have quite a collection of different ones. I will do them as I wear them. Forgot to do the car, though, but was reminded by @shrdlu's answer!

vote-for5vote-against

I will wait till tomorrow and let my laptop and cell phone tell me what time I am supposed to switch to so I don't mix it up.

vote-for6vote-against

I'm in AZ so we don't observe that daylight savings stuff. Makes it nice for going to CA since I don't have to change the clock, but it messes up the TV schedule for a day

Think Apple really solved the iOS alarm problems for DST this year?

vote-for7vote-against

What I love are the endless conversations about it all next week. Plus, I can be late or early for anything and totally have a great excuse.

vote-for4vote-against

I change half of them at night and then get confused in the morning because I don't remember which ones I changed. It's a tradition. :)

vote-for5vote-against

@tippypaws: sounds like my house. Already did a few doouble checks on the cell phone. But guess what!! For the first year ever, my cell didn't automatically uddate. I don't think it did, not real sure at this momment. What time is it?

vote-for4vote-against

Power has been out since Thursday, so everything will need to be reset anyway. Regardless, I always seem to forget a few, especially watches.

vote-for3vote-against

I never bother to change the microwave or the oven. The time on the oven is slow, so it's off in a matter of days anyway.

vote-for3vote-against

My cable box still has not even updated. Stupid Charter.

vote-for2vote-against

I always update any clock, that does not automatically update, on Saturday evening. I've been doing it this way for quite a few years.
