    As the clocks changed by an hour last night, a quick reminder on how to adjust your tMP clock.

    User CP > Edit Options > Time Zone > [Select correct setting] > Save Changes

    If you then select : Automatically detect DST settings, it'll remember to do it for you. ;)

    That is, the clocks changed in the UK. In the US, we don't change until next week.

    What's with this stupid thing of changing the clock's? From what I've heard it was brought in to give farmer's extra time in the morning, but that's stupid as it doesn't actually give any more hours of light. Couldn't they just get up at different times depending on when the sunrise is? Just creates confusion.

    I agree entirely, it confuses me no-end! It's nearly dark already so my brain keeps thinking it's nearly time for bed! And I only got up at 12 (new time)!!

    Daylight time never had anything to do with farmers. If you've ever worked on a farm, you understand that farmers work by the sun, not the clock.

    The idea of daylight time actually didn't come about until the late 19th century, and the people who "benefit" are office and shift workers who have fixed working hours.

    Personally, I'd like to see time zones abolished in general. Everyone ought to just go on UTC (GMT).
