How many of our members had to observe the DST regulations? I know some locations weren't affected
How many of you remembered?

Is your local media making a mountain out of a mole hill about how DST will affect your computer?

We were affected by the DST change. I actually forgot until my daughter asked why our cable box said 10:00 this morning, when all the other clocks said 9:00.

I've noticed that there seems to be a frenzy in the local media here about how the DST change will affect computers. So much drama over nothing. My friends don't understand why I don't watch the news. Go figure.

I travelled all week for work, had a wedding to go to saturday 1/2 day and spent the other 1/2 with my wife's family ... drove back late last night and then I LOST?? and hour to this DST! ARGH! I think it's probably about time to do away with DST, but that's my opinion.

It pretty well screwed me up for the day I'd say. I felt like I was robbed of half the day, even though it was only an hour.
This morning my son woke up about 6am (old time) and I made him go back to sleep. He slept until 9am, only to find out that the time had changed, and instead it was 10am. I've usually got him eating breakfast by 8am. Now he's 2 hours off schedule. He got no nap, because he didn't eat lunch until 2pm.
What a mess!

Thank goodness this only happens twice a year, and only once does it go forward.
