Title: Daylight Savings Time Ends
Post by: vadernader on October 29, 2012, 08:59:54 AM
Remember to set your clocks back this weekend (11/4/2012 At 2:00AM) as daylight saving time ends.

I've always wondered, why 2 in the morning?

Enough people are asleep that it doesn't interfere with anyone's schedule.

Can you imagine how confusing it would be if the time changed during the day? People, businesses, schedules, etc. would be thrown into chaos. Also, they couldn't very well do the time change at midnight either, because that'd force people change the time back to "yesterday." At 2 a.m., most people are probably at home, and most businesses are closed, so as to cause as little confusion as possible.

the worst part about this for me is that it means TPIR is now on at 2am my time, instead of 1am - making it just that much harder to catch live. :P

I wouldn't mind that actually if they made it during a workday. I'd get paid an extra hour.  :P

Although we're setting the clocks back one hour I still hate doing it. Lol.

But then you'd lose that extra hour when we spring forward. :-P

Yeah, I see vader did beat me to my usual post about that.  Oh well, I have had enough to think about lately.

And just for the record, grammatically, it's Daylight Saving Time, not "savings."

For the record, grammatically, you should not start a sentence with a conjunction. :P

Speaking of DST, a special day will come next year for me, and it's a very important day. I turn 30 on March 10th, 2013, and that's the day we "spring forward" an hour! I happen to be a clock nerd, so this event is special for me. Never in my life have I ever thought the day would come when an event like this happens on my birthday, thanks to the new DST rules (I know they've been in effect for a few years) The only sad part about this is that the time change that happens on this day won't happen again for another 6 years.

But you're mistaken!  And others agree.  Starting a sentence with a conjunction has been acceptable for some time, especially in an informal setting such as this.

For the record, I was just joking around (Thus the :P...). I said that you should not, I never said you can not.

I'm fully aware of everything you just said, and in an informal setting such as this, "Savings" and "Saving" should not really matter either. :) (Especially since Savings has been commonly used and accepted for some time as well)

That is very interesting! Too bad you lose 1 hour of your birthday though :-(

Yeah, it is a shame that I lose an hour of my life on my birthday. Oh well, what can you do?

Honestly, I prefer Daylight Shifting Time myself.

I know, I know.  I saw the smiley.  I was just being a pill.  ;-)

Seconded.  The word 'saving' is particularly inappropriate considering we're still rapidly losing daylight during the first week of November.
