Oh Man, sorry Alix! Did it mess up things?

I'm waiting for it all to settle down before I try to record anything.

It might eat all your romantic-comedies...

I have to remember to change the clock in the car...I thought I had been out for two hours, not one. Figured Shrek would have fits when I got home from picking up milk.

I know there was in issue with clocks purchased before a certain date, it made me put the one back I was going to buy. But dang, I can't remember the date.

I always chnged the clocks at 11 pm...I'd rather gain or lose an hour early in the shift. Of course, I would keep track of meds that needed to be given on time, 1/2 an hour either way doesn't make difference, so I would wait a half hour and start the med pass.
Yeah, I figured it was something like that! I love technology and I hate technology.

True, but sometimes even when it works it is at the expense of something else. I have a feeling that if the power went out forever around the world a lot of people would not know how to survive. That said, do not mess with my tech stuff!

Absolutely, even I would have to have at the very least a diesel run generator if we had to head for the hills. I was writing, at one time, a SF novel on the lack of tech and how we would survivie. I spent alot of time thinking about what I would stockpile if I knew it would happen.
