Day Light Savings Tonight

So, everyone remember tonight is the spring forward time change. Kinda weird it's so early this year but supposed to help save energy or something

I'm so confused, my watch says its 3:04, my laptop says its 4:05, and my digital cable box says its 6:35. Also the clock for the forum says its 5:07. What is wrong with technology?

I love the fact that we don't have daylight savings time in Arizona. It's easier to remember not to change clocks.

I wish we could set the clocks forward ANOTHER hour and leave it alone. I love having light to work with in the garage til like 9:00, and I love driving/riding to work in the dark.

Yep. This is the first time in a LONG time that I called in sick to work. I woke up to the alarm, said, "hell with it" shut the alarm off and called my manager's voicemail.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

The forum time depends on your personal settings. You can tell the forum what time zone you're in, which would affect the time displayed on posts. For instance, here in Indianapolis (Eastern time), it's 5:51pm.

and from looking at the forum clock and the time of my post, forum time is correct as I view it. Check your settings.

Actually, it's correct, as I view it. Go into UserCP and select "Edit Options" on the left menu. Scroll down until you get to "Date and Time Options" then set it for your time zone. If you're in Georgia, then it's (GMT -5:00) Eastern Time...

Do you have it set to automatically detect DST settings? Is your computer set to auto change based on DST as well?
