Daylight Saving

Post by Valigarmander » Sat Mar 10, 2018 1:04 pm

Unless you're in Arizona, Hawaii, or Saskatchewan (or some other, more civilized country), DST begins tomorrow at 2 am. It's the crappy one where you lose an hour, too, so I hope you're ready for that crap. :knockedout:

I used to think I hated Daylight Saving. Then I started having to work with UTC.


"Wouldn't it be nice if you could just calculate the user's time zone from their UTC offset? TOO BAD, DUMMY. We made a totally random selection of time zones move up or down an hour at equally random times of year, so you get to add in an entire date time library if you want to do anything useful."


"...also, we made India UTC +5:30. Just because."

Daylight Savings time is awful and stupid.

Then you have a kid.

And you realize that it’s even worse than you ever thought.

Finally more light. It was awful when it got dark at 4:30.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

Neither kids nor cats care what time it is. It's light and they want to be fed RIGHT MEOW.

We don't do daylight savings. And I thank all the deities every time someone mentions it. :D

The forum time zone didn't update by default for me (although it did have the right time zone suggested), so heads up for that.

i already lost an hour due to timezones this weekend so i didn't appreciate dst on top of that

especially having to sing at an 8 a.m. church service where we didn't get a chance to warm up this morning.

it is nice to have light when i get off work now, but an easy solution to that would have been not putting the clocks back an hour half a year ago to begin with
