    For those of you in the US that use DST, remember today is the day to set your clocks forward an hour.

    Nah i'm not the clock master, I'm the key master.

    Though I was ........ed off last night, tried to goto bed at 11 but didn't fall asleep until after 3, got up at 8 only to find out it's really 9.

    Today is not gonna be a good day.

    Like it or not DST is actually a good thing. While I don't have them at hand there are studies showing that DST helps to reduce energy consumption.

    And whackaxe if anyone misses a meeting and blames it on DST they deserve to be fired. Only excuse would be if the meeting was on the Sunday of the change.
