Spring Ahead, Fall Back (except in the Funkyverse)

Cidu Bill on Nov 5th 2017


When this ran on March 12, Laurie sent it to me noting that it made more sense the morning Daylight Saving Time ended.

So as a special favor to Batiuk, I re-scheduled it for today.

Maybe he’s too sleepy to remember, but…

There are way fewer items that need manual changing now than there used to be.

Sunday Afternoon Bonus LOL (and by the way, it’s kind of weird to be getting a foot and a half of snow two days after Daylight Saving Time begins; I guess it’ll give us an extra hour to shovel)

Standard Time Returns

Cidu Bill on Nov 4th 2016

I’m going to be away for a few days, so I’ve scheduled the next handful of posts. DST ends Saturday night, of course, and it’s anybody’s guess whether this means the posts will appear and hour early or an hour late.

(oddly enough, it seems to be arbitrary)

So… there’s no Daylight Saving Time in Kevin and Kell’s Universe?

Time Change

Cidu Bill on Mar 13th 2013


Speaking of time changes… as always, Wordpress will be putting queued posts online an hour late (1:02am ET instead of 12:02am) until it gets its act together. This has been an issue twice a year for at least the past 7 or 8 years. Seriously, this whole Daylight Saving Time thing isn’t brain surgery: you’d really think they’d figure out how to program their system to make the change-over automatically.

(and yes, this post is going online on time — but that’s because I’m manually changing it)

DST Question

Cidu Bill on Mar 15th 2010

I was just wondering… If you have OnStar or Sirius Radio in your car, does your dashboard clock change by itself when DST begins (the same way the time in your cell phone and DVR do)?

WordPress and Daylight Saving Time

Cidu Bill on Mar 15th 2010

For some reason, WordPress never figures out that Daylight Saving Time has begun until a few weeks after the fact, meaning each day’s new post will show up an hour late (unless I remember to manually change each one after 12:02am).
