    We get similar things now and again here in the UK, currently the latest is go +1 in 'a' March then leave it - put's us more in line with Europe.

    Luckily I am much too young to remember Double Summer Time - they tried that in the early 70s I think (and all sorts of time fiddling between 1939-45)

    I tend to wake up at the same time anyway - regardless of what time they call it - I'm just glad they don't call it 2am

    So much for the extra hour of sleep when you wake up anyway.

    We play poker every Sat. with a friend in Scotland. When Scotland falls back and before we fall back,there is 4 hours between Scotland and us,which is really nice. Well,time will tell how all this is sorted out. I hope you go with it and maybe it will cause other countries to follow suite.

    Because the voice told you to.

    Re: Daylight savings time

    I must say, if people want to get up an hour earlier in the summer, I don't see why they don't just get up an hour earlier in the summer. Why mess around with the clocks? Is changing the alarm time that much harder than changing the clock time?

    I endorse doing away with not only clock changes, but time zones.

    With the current levels of near instantaneous international commerce it only makes sense to have everyone on the same time standard. What does it matter if the sun comes up at 0600 or 1600?

    I read that an American guy thought that global warming was caused by making the days longer in the summer. FAIL
