This Time Change Thing Gets Easier and Easier

XXXIt's time to roll back the clocks an hour. This bi-yearly time-change task only gets easier and easier.

Back in the day we had to change every single clock. There was pretty much one in every room, not to mention watches and the car. It was a pretty big deal, as I recall, but now it's pretty easy.

Our bedroom clock is our digital cable receiver, and it updates automatically. My alarm clock is actually my Blackberry, and it updates automatically. The clock I use most often, the one in the bottom right corner of my laptop, will update automatically.

That means I'm updating the stove and cars. That's it. That didn't take any time at all.

Stop trying to wind your clocks back 3 weeks, Leaf fans.

Glad to hear that as your mom could use some help with changing her clock in her car and stove!

I just want to know WHY? Should have just left it where it was. :@!

I used to argue passionately against changing the clocks twice a year. It's a relic from a time long gone.

The only problem is that software still have problems with this.

My iPhone alarms set from last week rang 1 hour later than they should.

For example, they were set for 6:30AM, but they rang when the phone hit 7:30AM.
