    YEp, computer here stays on universal time. Kathy's linux
    box, <who cares> doesn't matter that much.
    sEt one clock on the wall to new time, adjust our watches.
    Bedroom alarm clock is probably inaccurate now anyway, as it loses its mind whenever the power glitches. WE make sure
    it's set to proper time before we go to bed when we need it
    next morning.

    Means I've got a ham radio net to control on Thursday nights which runs an hour
    later now due to DST. OTher than the
    discombobulation of my body clock for a few days I guess I"m ready.

    Wish they'd leave it the heck alone though.

    Regards,
    Richard

    I leave the wall clocks set the way they are. Too many to change.

    The older you get, the shorter your nights become.

    I didn't vote for it and if it were up to me, I'd abolish DST.

    Yah we've got the one in the living room and the kitchen
    stove clock. IF they're inccurate that's Kathy's problem.
    i use my braille watch on my wrist, or the computer, or to
    get minutes past the hour I use the national bureau of
    standards wwv on shortwave just to see if the computer's
    setting its clock three mornings a week like it's supposed
    to <g>. WE'll have to make sure time on the alarm clock is
    right tonight though as I've gotta get Kathy up, gotta go to the car wash, vacuum out the van and then go pick up some
    new to us office furniture tomorrow.

    Yah, and losing anotehr hour don't help <g>.

    I sure didn't either. Have read that accident rates go up
    when they change the time like that. <oh well>.

    That's also one of the two times I touch them. The other is for battery replacement.

    I'm too old for an alarm clock. (-: There was a time, when I was in the workforce, that you could set your clock when I got out of bed. It was 05:00 for many years. Not anymore.

    One would think that by now the stone heads that enacted that law(?) would realize it's doing more harm than good.

    Me, too. It no longer really makes any sense. Indiana had it right, until their gov talked them into joining the rest of us sheeple. ;)

    In this day and age of air conditioned comfort, it makes some folks money to leave it intact.
