    You might have guessed it, my pick was........................ ORANGE :D

    Just a reminder:
    For those who stare @ their clocks above the postings and still go o_O....
    You can change the time exposed there in your PROFILE.


    (I wonder if the individual behind option #6 finally gets revealed ;))
    Gotto go, have an hour to catch up!

    I take it your poll is directed at the EU folks? In the USA daylight saving time (for those locations that observe it) begins on April 4. ;)

    Linux used to be fun (not for me, though), doing everything manually. Not so anymore, my linux desktop changed to summertime automatically. It looks almost like Windows now :cool: :D

    LOL, Slammer, it really felt to me as if DST should have started today. But I have to wait another week. Your poll is a good reminder for everyone, though. :)

    Thanks sig: poll was/is intended that way too.

    Also a thankyou for reminding me to the English expression of "Daylightsavings";
    what a beautiful thought that is! If only we sometimes could -in real life. :)

    Anyway, for those whom it concerns: Remember April 4th :D
    For all others: only half a year, and we'll have our 'lost' hour back! ;)

    Enjoy SPRINGtime - in whatever weather you have to face it!

    Grtz,
    Slammer

    "Question: Ok now, be honest: Did you remember to reset your clocks this weekend?"

    Man, Slammer, I'm glad you're over in Europe (I'm in the States) 'cuz after first reading your post I thought "Geez, I've really screwed up with the clock adjustment this time! It was last weekendo_O!!"

    But this will make me all the more sure to set my clocks forward this coming Saturday night! :cool:

    I set my clocks back last night since I had this thread in mind for the last week, although in the morning I turned off the alarm and went back to sleep. :D

    Since I synch my clock online once or twice a month (just about every system I've ever owned gains about a minute a month), the computer's "official" time for anything else in the house that needs reset.

    I miss 98SE's reminder-popup that the change to Daylight had been looked after, the first bootup after the scheduled change. XP simply changes the time quietly behind the scenes without saying a word, and I have to double-check that it's been done.
