    Don't forget to turn your alarm clocks back an hour tonight before you go to bed. It's going to be 12 am or 11 pm here in 3 minutes. Just wanted to leave a friendly reminder.

    All my clocks set themselves, my Computer, Cell Phone, Cable Box, etc...

    I never have to worry about it.

    It is the longest bar night of the year though!!!!!

    my computers set themselves....last week...i fixed it, then they did it again a few days ago....whats the point in synching if its wrong

    and the sad part....i work, so that means its now a 13 hour job...even though we get that as over-time, i'd rather would of been able to leave earlier.

    DST is one of the coolest things about Indiana, some people hate it, but I love it.

    Since we are on the western border of the time zone, it will stay light out here until 10 pm. Nothing like our Alaskan brethern, but still cool.

    What's odd is that this forums times haven't changed yet, do I have to do that manually for my account or something?

    We had our change-over in the UK last weekend, with the end of British Summer(?!) Time. I still haven't sorted out all the clocks, my PC and phone were the only devices to automatically change.

    Usually I love fall back, but I was in my graveyard shift and it made worse with the extra hour

    I remember doing graveyards one year I trying to explain to my boss about the extra hour of work...he didn't get it...had to draw it on paper before he understood.

    i like the other DST...if its a work day, we work 11 hours and get paid for 12...way better than working 13 hours and getting paid for 13.

    sadly, i got told to stay out of the Fab due to non-work related injuries...so after doing projects for 4 hours, i said screw it and went home...
