If you set your computer manually, remember that it will then set itself forward another hour in April, on the date it is programmed to change automatically. So you'll have to set it back an hour then.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

That's right, unless you turn off the automatic DST feature.

Anything she mentions doesn't matter. The only melt down that actually already happened is her brain, or rather lack of it.

I wish it would stay Daylight Savings Time all year round but I heard something that the reason why they change the time twice a year has to do with the farmers.

I do enjoy the days getting longer with the light.
