Remember, it kicks in again tomorrow

Conspiracy time! We lose 1 hour this long weekend and monday is a day off to acclimatise for the change!

Although it usually takes a week for everyone to be back in sync with their body/ time clocks

I feel sorry for those people holidaying in qld and going back down south on monday. That is a real shock

It was easy this year, everything changes on it's own now. Remember the days of clambering around manually changing wall clocks etc etc. The oven is the only one I have to do manually.

I must say having been waking up around 6am these past few weeks its good to wake up at 7:30am this morning :lol:

Plus the only clock i needed to change was the microwave and the one on the wall in the kitchen. The rest changed automatically.

And one other thing to remember is to turn SUMMER time on in your preferences on the board :)

I change my own times on the PVR and set top box that way I know it's correct :)
I remembered the car this morning too! :O

Except for my computers, I have to adjust every clock manually. Alarm clock, stove, microwave, mobile phone, cordless phone, car clock etc. No big deal, though. They're all done except for the car, and that will be fixed on my way to work on Tuesday.

Interesting why Perth doesnt have daylight saving:
the reason why they would never have daylight saving in perth is because of the adverse heat, its simply too hot to keep daylight out there to enjoy having a cup of coffee while the sun slowly disappears at 7.30 (that coffee would be iced)

The sooner the sun goes down the more bearable Perth becomes

I wont sound very popular with WA folk but Perth's heat rivals Qatar's (World Cup 2022 host) too much
