I only had to do a grandfather clock, and that was done by stilling the pendulum for an hour and then starting it back up.

Still waiting for the feds to approve what the great voters of California voted for. Year round DST.

Damn, I have to change the time on the security DVR. Interestingly, I have a mechanical timer outside for the lights at the front of the house, and because the timer is set to when the sun sets and rises, I don't have to change the settings because who cares if the pins are at 6pm and 6am or 5pm and 5am.

I would prefer year round standard time but I would settle for year long DST. I just want it to stop.

This. While I would prefer DST, I would settle for either one so long as it was permanent.

I wonder how far this will get:
Quote:
A bill pre-filed in Kentucky is looking to bring time changes to an abrupt end.

"Having to fall back or spring forward is an antiquated practice that needs to end," says 89th district State Representative Robert Goforth.
... We need to just lock the clock, I think it has bi-partisan support from many different groups," says Goforth. "I think it can show that we can work together and we do commonsense things for the people of Kentucky."

I'm pretty sure it favors permanent DST.

Cool! You'll be on Pacific Time with us in BC.

I love the idea of year long dst. An extra hour of sun in the evenings will be the difference between some and no sun in a lot of people's lives.

so, basically, fiddlesticks the people who have to be out in the early morning and I am sure that pushing morning rush hour into permanent darkness will do wonders for highway safety.

Let's split the difference. Move the clock a half hour forward from standard time and be done.

The people who have to be out early in the morning are already going to be out in the darkness. They'll benefit more from having an extra hour of sun in the evening after they get off work they can actually use.

As for the highway, there are these things called street lights. If they're not safe to use in the morning, they're not safe to use at night when it's currently dark in the winter.

I do realize you live in the south though, so you are working with more daylight Pariah.

Everything here applies to the evening as well.
I think this is another curious reflection of how we live in a stay up late oriented culture that is hostile to morning activities.

I'd be happy to fundamentally shift how our society works, but in the meantime, social pressure means people socialize after work, not in the morning. And sunshine makes people happier and healthier.

You may socialize in the evenings, most of my fun activities are in the mornings.
