Spring Forward Before Spring

Caption: This is a clock that's made out of an old CD drive and some other computer parts, according to the site where I found this picture.

Hey, what happened? All of a sudden it's 3AM!

Oh, wait, the Congress had to do something about energy consumption, so they changed when daylight savings time starts.

If, as my computers do, your computer has the latest time zone data, your computers should have the right time. At least, they will if they're Macs or POSIX. Windows, I dunno. If you're not sure if you have the right time, go here and look for your time zone.

Most of your other clocks will have to be adjusted, of course.

Have a good Sunday. The Sunday Photo feature should be up in, make that five hours.

I was actually writing so hard I didn't realize what had happened to that hour. I looked up at the clock on the DVR and went, "Wow, three already - didn't I go out for a cigarette just a few minutes ago around one-forty-ish?" Completely forgot about DST. Usually, I'm watching the clock tick over directly from 1:59 to 3:00 am with a feeling of rage and injustice at the loss of an hour.
