    OK, what's going on? Last night I was up and noticed a time difference of one hour after 2:00 am, so I thought, between my tablet automatic time and my plug-in clock. Then it seemed to be like 4:00 am almost right away.

    Tonight, my light that usually cuts on by timer at 8:15 pm, came on at 10:15 pm.

    What do you think happened? I just figured it out now as I'm typing this. icon_wink.gif

    Nothing like that happened to me today. But I sure did miss that extra hour of sleep this AM. icon_neutral.gif

    Our power went out for an hour this morning. That's why the timer was two hours ahead after DST.

    i think what happened was you're not aware enough to know how to spell "daylight saving time" correctly, so why would you be able to figure out anything else?

    I don't see the need for daylight saving time in a modern world with artificial illumination, and much of the planet doesn't do it. Changing over is a mixed bag of automatic and manual for us, an annoying project twice a year:

    Automatic:
    - 2 desktop computers
    - 2 tablets
    - 2 smartphones
    - 1 notebook computer
    - 1 wireless printer
    - 1 digital camera
    - 1 wristwatch wirelessly (but see note below)
    - 3 wireless residential phones
    - 3 satellite TV boxes
    - 1 BluRay disc player

    Manual:
    - 1 microwave
    - 1 oven
    - 1 coffeemaker
    - 1 wall thermostat
    - 1 digital camera
    - 1 car
    - 1 nightstand clock
    - 1 analog wall clock
    - 1 bicycle cyclometer
    - 14 wristwatches (between the 2 of us, but we change the time only as worn)

    My daily-wear wristwatch is supposed to sync wirelessly with the US atomic clock in Denver each night, but rarely succeeds indoors; South Florida is too far away. So I have to take it outside for the time change and set it on a bench on the open lawn, pointing the dial northwest. Daylight apparently upsets the atmospherics, so it has to be as dawn is breaking. Takes about 10 minutes of me sitting alongside it in the dim light, I'm sure the neighbors think we've had a fight and I got kicked out. Or one of these days someone who doesn't know me is gonna call the cops. icon_redface.gif
