Well, we saved daylight at the end of the day, which is kind of the point.  

If you're complaining about the loss of an hour of sleep, I will sympathize with you there.  I too, am hurting.

I like the sun going down at 7pm now though.....I'll catch up on sleep tonight.

Best day of the year.

When it changes back, it's sad.

West Oz finishes our three year trial of DST this month, and a referendum will follow later in the year to decide if DST should be continued.


All of the polls seem to indicate that we will not be having DST again.


It was voted down years before, but some oxygen-thief politician...but I repeat myself...decided that it would be a good thing. Fucker.  Twisted Evil


Maintaining the 2 hour time difference with the Eastern States is not sufficient reason to have it, especially when it puts you out of step with your major trade markets in Asia...all of whom are in our timezone, but don't have DST.


Cheers,
Tim

So that's what it is. I was curious as to why the 'offline hour' of PSW had moved forward again.

Just out of interest, when does it change back again?

Are you kidding? I count the days until DST! More daylight hours to spend in the great outdoors! Cool

I'm up early regardless, so the alleged "lost hour" doesn't affect me at all.

Love it!

Rode my scooter to work in the dark this morning, now I have lots of daylight after work to get things done.

It's cool I can get more stuff done around the house in the evenings as well as hit the fishing hole before dark. I just have to get use to it.

Wouldn't be a problem if they didn't fuck it up in the first place sometime last fall (and every fall).

I just don't see the advantage in inducing jet-lag-like symptoms on the entire population twice a year.  Pick one and stick with it.
