The "Vanishing Hour" occurs THIS SUNDAY (in North America)

Postby TStodden » 08 Mar 2016, 19:12

In case you need the prod... Daylight Savings Time (or the "Vanishing Hour", I like to call it) starts this Sunday (March 13th).

Just make sure you set your clocks ahead by one hour (if they don't to it by themselves) & enable the DST setting in the forums to keep the clocks in sync.

I love that video so much. You can see his slow descent from "That's fine." to Image over the course of the video.

For someone on the other side of the world, does that mean content comes out (effectively) one hour earlier?

My computer (or at least the one at work) is prodding me about the time change, so it's pretty much the annual post.

The rest of the world might have made the jump already... so there may be some disconnect for this week for them.

That video actually put me a bit on edge. It was amazing, don't get me wrong. But I could feel the frustration.

You see, I thought you were going to link this. I was kind of disappointed.

I got forwarded a 'puff piece' article about 'evil DST' by someone (you know, the sort of tertiary article that cites multiple sources...of other news articles, which actually cite studies and the like ;) ) and was coming over here to get worked up into a real foaming-at-the-mouth rant about the HARM changing our daily rhythm does to us...

...and I'd seen y'all have already transitioned on to 'finding the funny' in it, and it cheered my jet-lagged and pedantic self up massively. :D


Thank you! :mrgreen:


Bee Tea Dubs - here's link to 'DST bad' article if anyone's interested. I was gonna take a while and backtrack to the sources of studies and so forth - CCfOHS's DST-Monday car crash spike study, for example - but now I'm not so worked up about it anymore ;^)

I liked all the videos you all posted. The computer was especially good.
