    The thread was more for the macro but sorry I reminded you (again) that stuff with time was happening.

    I don't even get why we do this anymore.

    It's pointless in the modern era.

    I hate Spring ahead, but this year it wasn't so bad. And Fall back is my favorite night of the year. :)

    LOL

    For me it was weird this spring-forward. I forgot the change last night and stayed up watching mindless movies. At 11:30PM I remembered so instead of going to bed on saturday night, I went to bed on sunday morning.
    Why it matters, I haven't a clue, but my time sync is way off today as a result.

    Except time change happens at 2 am to avoid day confusion.

    agreed, except now we have cell phones that do it automatically at 2am so you should be running into any confusion, just tiredness

    It's so we can have more daylight after work though. I dig DST.

    Yeah, I understand why it was needed (cut down on fuel consumption [ie: wax candles] back in the day but I don't think it's worth the hassle anymore. That's all.

    I appreciate it a lot more since moving out of southern Cali I guess. Towards August here we have sunlight till nearly 10pm. It's pretty rad. /shrug

    I was going to say the same thing Lurker. They really need to do away with DST.
