.........forward an hour tonight, remember!
Have only been reminded of it myself. Oops!
Yes good job I have been reminded of this many times as we are at tameside tommorrow! Would not be a good start to be late!
Warning to US people who might read this thread - in the US, the clocks go forward NEXT weekend (first weekend in April).
yep - I am looking forward to seeing who turns up late for the contest....
About 4-5 years ago, after a pleasant evening partaking of some of Mr McEwan's finest 80/- ale, I decided to reset all the clocks, timers, watches etc. before crawling into bed. I didn't reset the clock on the PC, however, 'cos it does it itself.
Just as well....
When I surfaced that Sunday lunchtime, one of the first things I did was turn on the PC. That's when I realised that all the clocks, etc., were 2 hours out.
tmp is currently an hour behind! It's confusing me (easily done :biggrin: )
And on that note, don't forget to set your tMP clock to GMT+1

I have read that the clocks will not go back in October from now on:clap: , a debate will be taking place in Parlament in due course as anyone else seen this?
I just hope that it happens, i get fed up with it all the time
Just leave the clocks alone!!!!!
They say that every year. They have to go back in October to get us back to GMT! I don't think there is any problem with changing the clocks twice a year. It isn't exactly a massive undertaking. And it is the only time that my clocks actually tell the right time!
Dave i know what you mean but
It would make more sense not to put the clocks on in spring, since Daylight Saving is (quite litereally) an anachronism. How many of us now need to go to bed with the chickens and get up with the cows, or whatever the phrase is.
If that's their personal preference, far be it from me to condemn. Live and let live I say...:tongue:
As i understand farmers have been the most vocal about supporting retaining changing the clocks twice a year on the grounds of milking etc etc. I find this argument hard to understand as Ive yet to see a cow who can tell the time!
I would contest any change to the current system vociferously. As it stands I always get an extra hours kip for my birthday and I see no reason to change that.......
- quite right! ... not often you get a birthday present like that!
(what about the crops farmers have? The clocks change to give them more daylight working hours up to harvest season).
Heard some Lord on the radio last week proposing a 2 hour addition to Summer time - the intention is to make more use of available light - i.e. less electricity = less carbon emissions etc.
The bells have been ringing at all the wrong times today, the kids have been HYPER!!!
I read that proposal in the paper on Saturday, apparently if it gets through we won't turn the clocks back in October, then put them another hour ahead next March. Apparently it will cut crime, fuel costs and will help deperssion. I hope it gets through, I hate going to work in the dark, then coming home in it as well- that IS depressing!
Am I missing something here? There's still only the same amount of daylight around, so how can it cut crime/fuel costs etc? And everyone will still have to go to work in the dark, it'll be darker in the mornings instead...
Is the day we change the clocks and by how much really the biggest thing this country has to worry about! Jesus!
