Yes it's that time of year again, PVR Timers mess up time, possibly..... Sunday.

"Winter Clock Change Information
Clocks change backwards one hour on the last Sunday in October, change your non auto clocks one hour after  1:00 a.m."
"Fall Back"
An extra hour in bed, an extra hour on Unlimited ....
What will you do with your "extra" hour ?
I know I'll be resetting some of my PVR's, most automatically reset the clock, but some older ones don't !

'Bout time we stopped this nonsense of 'mucking about with clocks twice a year'
We can't create nor destroy time (AFAIK) so why try to change it?
Yet to hear a credible argument in favour of BST, plenty of good arguments againt it!
Wonder if my router will know what time it is on Sunday morning...
what if I get a log entry between 1am and 2am - I may not know when an even occurred?

Every year this bl**dy arguement comes up about stopping the daylight saving times. As soon as the clocks change everyone forgets about it until 2 days before the next clock change.
It's driving me mad! Either stick with the arguement or stop bringing it up every year twice a year and then dropping it!

Excellent, another 'BST sceptic'  Smiley
Do trains end up an hour out of place or do they have to print a new set of timetables?

I think most organisations that have timetables change to winter schedules at clock changes.
But we wouldn't want to upset the Scottish hill farmers and crofters would we?
But hey! if Scotland leaves the UK they can go their own way with time, then in England we can scrap BST. Now that's worth voting for.
Off now to set up EMfIST  (English Movement for Independent Scottish Time) or e-mist.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I'm pretty sure that hill farmers an crofters don't work 'to the clock' anyway, they work to nature's clock so BST is pretty irrelevant there too.

Absolutely no idea.. but that did get me thinking.. What happens if you're on a wee-hour train and the clocks go back / forward and you get to your destination early / late? Can you get compensation on that one day?  Cheesy Wink

Probably right, but its always one of the reason wheeled out against scrapping BST.
Just out of curiosity though, if clock changes was scrapped, would we stay permanently on BST or GMT?
No, the timetable would simply show a different arrival time and assume you set your wrist watch en-route, much the same way flights that cross international time zones do.

Wonder if I can order a pizza at 5 to 2am on spring clock-change night then refuse to pay because it took well over an hour to deliver it?  Cool

Good idea shutter, I think I've already wasted my extra hour chatting about it in this thread.
'Sometimes I spend the extra hour getting drunk and picking up dodgy women, other times I just waste it.'

What will you do with your "extra" hour ?

Both our neighbours remain on BST throughout the year, have done for as long as I can remember, we joined them 2 years ago (stay on BST).

Lol sorry mate, I love the railways and am a fan of them but I'm not a hardcore railway buff that could tell you about every aspect of them. I just find them fascinating and think it's sad that our railway heritage keeps being destroyed.
