Actually, most parts of AZ observe MST all year long. One CA legislator is trying to get a bill passed to put it to a vote as to whether to abolish DST. Recent news stories tell of an increase in heart attack and stroke the day of change.

Yes, battling stupidity usually is, even when only half the planet is being stupid.

DST was great for a narrow range of latitudes, in an era before communication across time zones was common, when lighting was difficult and activities generally followed the sun. In this century, it is only a source of confusion; at my latitude, it just doesn't work... at least with the shift dates currently used, which we had to change to avoid even worse confusion when the U.S. government decided to play with them.

I actually like DST. I will wake up at 4-5am instead of 3-4am

To add to the confusion:I wonder what ETI will have for message on their answering machine for all the eager early birds calling..... (April 1st is also April fools day)
Why o why o why did they add the PST comment?

Don't get me started about timekeeping in UNIX Brian - might have to explain epoch time...

Hi: All... You guys/gals think you're confused. We gained an hour from Fl. to Ala.(CST) then lost it in Ky.(EST), only to Lose it again at home(DST)!!! We did do some two timing in Gulf Shores as we only changed one clock in the trailer. What time's lunch? LoL Alf

Much better in VMS - a clunk (100 ns) is a wonderful thing... you might need to look that up.

Our first trip to Osoyoos found us arriving at the border crossing at 9am thinking it was empty for that time of day. Upon arriving at the CG we found the office was closed?
We then realized we had not reset our clocks on the trip out, it was only 6 am vs 9am on our watches.....

Regarding DST, it's time for THE quote: I have this on my office wall; I find daily application of it.

From Friedrich Schiller, about 1800, from the play The Maid of Orleans:

"Against stupidity the very gods themselves contend in vain."

My suggestion since Daylight Savings? Time starts tonight .... is to give ETI a call on Monday and ask them what time it is there. It's ALWAYS pleasant to talk to any of the girls .... they maybe busy... but a time check to sync watches doesn't take long.

You still have time to order a turbo auto dialer.
