For those that are affected, just a reminder that Daylight Savings Time is this weekend (Sunday to be exact at 0200) in which we put our clocks back 1 hour especially on our cameras. :)

Goodness gracious. I'm traveling from the West coast to the East coast this weekend. I'm already not gonna know what time it is, now you gotta throw this wrench into it?! I can't handle this.

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.

I guess it must vary all over the world. We don't have it where we live, but on the other side of Oz I think they've started for the summer. (opposite for northern hemisphere)

Thank you so very much for that awful reminder. Just another ploy to confuse we over the hill gang. :P

Seems like each area of the world has a different week, LOL! So much for coordination.

Is there anybody else but me that thinks that Daylight Savings Time has outlived it's usefulness?

Not really -- it was a "wartime necessity" which had a significant effect. It may have been "wrong" but not "silly" ...

Yet, still wrong... and needs to go away.

Why is this still a thing??

thank you.

and I still don't see how this saved fuel, or at least fuel that might otherwise be saved by going to war earlier or later... and don't forget Kaiser Wilhelm could be very very silly.

not just the dressing up; here is the man who in retirement had his servants cut down all his trees and saw them into logs so that he could then split them, with his one good arm.

I think it's because more people are awake and active at/after sunset than at/before dawn, so the less energy needed to generate light/heat/locomotion to support those activities the better. Making sunset occur later means your after school/work games (for example) can occur in daylight, whereas it's less likely to be a big deal to have to drive to work in the dark.

Actually, there's a pretty strong case to be made to shifting to the DST timetable permanently, and scrapping "standard" time entirely.

I'm an advocate of scrapping time altogether. All it does is cause us to be late and to age.

Totally agree!

In Hong Kong and China there is no DST. Practical people :)

In China there is only one time zone despite the size of the country...

I strongly agree. I love DST and it's always a disappointment when it ends - although starting work in the dark in winter would be a pita.

I live in Brisbane, Australia.

We do NOT get daylight savings because apparently OUR cows can't handle it, and because the extra hour of sunlight makes some people's curtains fade too much (I'm not kidding you..... some folks really believe that!!!!).

Around here, at the height of summer, the birds start yelling and screaming outside my bedroom window before 4am!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE IT!!!! We should actually have two levels of time changes, instead of none!

On the Gold Coast, a little down the road from me, is the border between Queensland and New South Wales. NSW does have daylight savings, and there is literally a main road in the middle of the central shopping/tourist district that marks the border....... one side of the road is one hour ahead of the other for half the year!!!!!!

It is insane and utterly stupid!

So if any of you USA folks think you have a problem....... it could be soooooooo much worse!!!!

LOL, thanks for the perspective! Oh, and enjoy the summer... as we head into the depths of winter, $*^%$$$*(^&)&!
