G'day,
11:08 am in Sydney, 2/11/99.

Last week we were 14 hours ahead of Mudcat, this week we're 16 hours. Lost an hour's sleep Sunday when we put the clocks an hour forward.

Cheers,
Alan

I'll tell you what I did once. At a school I taught in I knew that all the clocks had been put right by the caretaker. I went and told the school secretary that none of the clocks were right so she readjusted hers and rang the bell for morning break an hour earlier- It didn't half cause chaos!! The kids thought it was great!! Eric

I started this thread out of curiosity. But I thought you would have a laugh when I tell you what I did this weekend. The clock was supposed to go 1 hour back and I put it forward 1 hour...... I felt distinctly out of sinc with the rest of the world. Patrish - ahead of her time.

My dedication to scientific principle crashed up against my great need to sleep. Sorry. But I feel much more rested now. I have this theory that the human body needs 56 hours of sleep a week--4 hours a night and the rest on weekends.

Charlie, I'm really disappointed in you. Where's your dedication to scientific principle? If you'd posted every hour on the hour thru the night, we'd KNOW when the clock changed. I think it's accurate now. Let's see. My clock says 1:24 and +3 for MMT gives me 4:24 if the Mudcat clock has changed.

Today is Sunday 31.10.99 and it is now 15.22 Cleckheaton time and what time it is anywhere else I haven't got a clue. What ever time it is,it is mudcat time when I switch on the computer. I know, not much help to anyone trying to work out time zones to the micro-second or lat and lontidude down to the n'th degree. By the way, How long does it take for a response like this to get posted in real time? Must be pretty quick. Hi patrish, since it will have to be Monday when you log on at work, Bill says you know me! But, I am not aware that I know you. So see you at the Jug one night and find out! Not likely this Wednesday!( I've got parents evening at school till 20.40 ish) Though if I am quick, you nevr know. Happy haunting Folks!!!!!!!!!

Well wher I am it's 2.35 in the morning, and I'm off to bed. Where Mudcat Central is it's 9.36 in the evening. So I can work out the difference. But what happens this weekend when the clocks go back (or is it forward? Either way it's a bloody silly idea)

How long before we just have one global time zone, and adjust our bedtimes to suit ourselves? I think I might start thinking in terms of Mudcat time from now on.

I'm on Mudcat-3, that is to say, PDT. Until Sunday, and then I'm on PST. I thought Alaska, or parts of it didn't do the Daylight savings thing.
Bugsy told us he was on at 6 p.m. when it was 6 a.m. at the Cat. But he neglected to tell us what day it was. How far off MMT (Mudcat Mean Time) does that make him?

I work near where Sandy & Caroline live, at the intersection of NY, CT, & MA. I do hate the time change coming just before Halloween; it's always so dark (I s'pose lots of folks would like that, huh?)!

when you turn the clocks BACK you GAIN an hour's sleep. And then you get a little daylight extra in the morning for a little while. 'course it gets dark in the afternoon real fast.

bbc - I know what you mean....it's drive to work in the dark and drive home in the dark for me. I really would prefer to hibernate....the only time I see daylight is the weekends.

Here it's daylight savings time, eastern standard time. 12:38 pm at present. This coming Sunday night we turn the clocks back one hour. Spring forward, fall back we say here to help us remember what to do. So we lose an hour's sleep, but the children can walk to school in daylight for a while at least. Lovely weather here, 68 degrees and mostly sunny.

As I'm fond of saying, "If it wasn't for time, we'd have to do everything all at once."

A farmer was holding his pig up to his apple tree so the pig could eat. I asked, "Why not just knock 'em off the tree & let the pig eat 'em on the ground? That's such a waste of time!" The farmer responded, "What's time to a pig?"

Indiana is an unusual case--part of the state is in the Eastern Time Zone, and part of it is in the Central Time Zone. The division runs along County lines. In the winter, therefore, there are two times used in different parts of Indiana. But in the summer, the Central Time part of the state goes an hour ahead to Daylight time, while the Eastern time portion of the state stays on Standard time, which means effectively that it's the same time no matter where you are in the state.

Arizona, which aligns with its neighbors to the East and North with Mountain Standard Time in the winter, joins the same time zone as all the tourists from California in the summer, since it continues to observe Mountain Standard Time, which is identical to Pacific Daylight Time.

The other state that doesn't "do" Daylight Time is Hawaii, but they're so far away from everybody else, and everyone arriving in Hawaii has to reset their watch anyway, that they don't need to pay no never-mind to this Daylight Time nonsense.

Then there's Double-Daylight Time, where everyone moves TWO hours ahead of standard time, a system I've heard of in some summer camps and the Soviet Union. But that's a whole 'nother problem.

Rick, I don't think that there is a simple answer to changing a battery on a PC. There are a number of batteries used to start off with.

I have only changed one for somebody else and that was easy - just take the case off and one just unplug the leads from the battery and swap. I have got the cover off my PC at the moment and looking at mine, at a minimum, I would have to remove the hard disk and A drive just to gain access and even then it looks as if it would be very fiddly. I would suggest you note the model and ask a computer store for advice.

Well, Charlie, you are right, but, as it happens, I am, too. I am wrong that it is because of the time change. It is really just the seasonal change. The fact remains that, since I drive to work between 6 & 7 am, much of the year, it *is* in darkness. The good news is that I am usually home by 4 pm.

No, No, bbc--when standard time begins, the sun rises an hour EARLIER, ("sun rise" actually being "horizon set," and hour earlier being a communal myth, since we assign the hour arbitrarily)--but anyway, instead of driving to work in darkness, you can drive to work in the light. On the other hand, it means I get to drive HOME in darkness, starting next week.
