For those of us that observe it, don't forget to set you clock ahead one hour before you go to bed tonight!
In the beginning there was the command line.

Its about time.

So, my daughter was telling me all the things that she doesn't like about the switch back to Daylight Saving Time, starting with losing an hour of sleep. I told her that one of the things that bothered me was losing an hour of Stars End. She asked, "What's Stars End?" I told her it's a radio show on WXPN (a fairly local station), from 1 AM to 6 AM Sunday, that features the electronic/ambient/space music I like, and that there aren't many places to hear that kind of music.

She looked at me and said, "There's a reason for that!"

(Smart aleck kid!)

I looked at her and said, "How sharper than a serpent's tooth ..." *

She looked back at me and said, "You know, of course, that he was talking about the one who was right ... ?"

(Smart aleck kid!)



* A reference to Shakespeare's King Lear. My daughter is a senior in high school and has dreamed of being an engineer since fifth grade, but she is also a veteran of Junior/Senior Corps at the NJ Shakespeare Theatre. (Belated "Proud Dad" alert!)

Me neither, missplaced.

But you forgot one thing and that is, by daylight saving time, save you one hour power out.
At the end of the year than you'll see that daylight saving time is not bad.
But the words what I did give doesn't mean, that I am a lover of daylight saving time.
The fact that I save one hour with power is for me important, you know miss.?
We live in an expansive time and when you save your money on the Power bill from the Power Company, then is that not bad.
So the fact that I get everyday 1 hour less by this, well I can say: Its works for me.

@ computer-man,

There are many electrical options available to me, and I use one of them , so i save big everyday....

I'd rather have that extra hour of sleep and NOT have to leave for work in the dark.... :P

Actually, so-called Daylight Savings time saves neither daylight nor power. In the section of Indiana where I live, we didn't do the clock change nonsense for quite some time. A few years back, they finally decided to do the clock bounce. A study was done that first year of clock switcheroo, and it was found that there was well over $1 million dollars ADDITIONAL energy expense that year as a consequence.

I think I know why. Before the time clock change nonsense, given the time that school and many businesses start in the morning, when the days started getting longer, it was light in the morning and so they didn't have to turn on nearly so many lights in the morning. Added to that, families were getting up in the daylight in the morning and didn't have to turn on lights while getting their kids ready for school and themselves ready for work. Now by shoving the clock about, they have to turn on those lights during that hour of darkness in the morning.

Stupid. Let's put it on standard time and keep it there. There'd be a lot less confusion.

@ Orange Blossom,
I like the way you think Gal!!

I believe that Arizona is the only State that doesn't change there time...

I never could figure out how they figured that "Day light savings Time" saved anything... :whistle:

In some countries, save you power.
Of course, I am not a Summertime or what you people call, daylight saving time lover, but in my country is the weather different versus America and other over seas countries.
Yesterday must I about 19.00h. turn on my light, this evening would that 20.00h., that is 1 hour later than we have to do that in the Winter.
So folk, I believe that for your country, the daylight saving time is nonsense, but for the countries in Europe not.
Well find I that setting the clock one hour forward is to little, I would that it was 6 hours forward, than save I more power than now.
