It's that night of the year again when the clocks change right across Europe, and probably in other countries as well.
Why do we inflict this annoyance on ourselves twice a year ? I know it was introduced as an energy saving system during WW1 but that was a long time ago !
I don't mind changing watches even if my wife has three or four of them; every computer in the house changes itself (normally); the digital video recorder changes itself; and I never bother with the cooker and microwave clocks - I only use them as timers.
But ! I have a digital alarm clock and we have a digital heating thermostat and control unit which is wireless linked to the boiler and changing both of these means opening the manual (on a hard drive) and digging in to it. And neither could be called intuitive ! It is a real PITA !
It makes no difference to the amount of daylight we get. At the moment, in central Scotland we are getting just under 8 1/2 hours of daylight (sunrise to sunset), come the end of December at the Winter solstice it isn't even 8 hours. Calling sunrise at 0817 (Saturday) or 0718 (Sunday) makes no difference to the amount of light and I don't think the Sun cares !
Ah well, now I have that off my chest it's time to log-out and go and find those manuals.
