Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

I remember back in 2010 going in to work for 6am on the Monday morning & having 30 reach forklift trucks brought down to the workshop one after the other as the operators hadn't yet figured out how to change the time on the clock.

They where fine with changing the time on the older model but the new type truck that they hadn't had long defeated them - until they where shown how.

Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

One we always forget is the overnight timer on our electric water heater which we have set to be on during those overnight off-peak hours. Not much you might think, but if comes on a hour early (or off an hour late).... well it can make quite a difference over that five months and approx 150 hours of winter time.

Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

Several years ago I picked up a "new" (to me) central heating controller. To my surprise it did/does automatic time settings (+/- 1hr) only thing I need to do is occasionally reset the time as it has lost a bit over the past year.
The one I forget is the DVR in the car, never look at the time on it so it tends to be forgotten, I found that out a couple of years ago when I needed the footage and the time was an hour+ out.

Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

I used to religiously change all the clocks in my house before going to bed.

Now I just can't be arsed. They now only get changed over the following couple of days when I can be bothered.

Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

A good guide to putting your clocks back is to remember where you put the manuals....

Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

AFAIR only two 'manuals' here, the rest are automatic (watch, PCs, phones, car, etc.)   Cheesy

Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

@Champnet  Very true. I find my bedside clock a nightmare to operate, let alone change the time.

 

Funny enough, the car radio is like computers, smartphone. Turn on, wait a minute and it magically updates the time. If the battery as been disconnected at some point, it will even update the date as well. Simples!

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?

That's one of the two 'manuals' here, and has been known to remain on the wrong time until the clocks change again, just need to remember it's wrong!

It's OK in spring just holding the button down for about 1 sec momentarily to advance it 1 hour, but as the adjustment is only 'forwards' I have to wait for it to 'advance' 23 hours to put it back an hour.  Sad

As an inveterate collector of old clocks I'm going to have a busy morning.  😐

Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

Gave up on our beside clock not only because of changing the time twice a year which always had me scratching my head, but because the backup battery never worked from the time I first bought it and it only took blip in the mains power supply and I'd have to try and reset the damned thing.  

So into the bin it went, and on goes my Kindle if I need to check the time in the morning. Why the heck I still find checking the time so important now I'm long retired I don't know. Force of a habit I guess.

Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

That might not be for long @shutter as it seems yet another order to transfer to PlusNet has fallen foul of gremlins in PNs systems ...

Re: A guide to putting your clocks back.

@shutter hello OM. I'm back but don't know for how long. The transfer in to PN isn't going well. And the staff can't be bothered to answer my question.
