Our clocks went back the weekend past. I finally have that hour I lost in Spring returned to me. I shall make a point of not dying during daylight saving time when an hour of my life is stolen. Nevertheless, I like daylight saving and I would not care if it went for the whole year. Who cares about daylight in the morning except cows and curtains?
The clock changing business seems to get easier each year. There was time when your phone asked if you wanted to update to the new time. Even the computer asked that, sometimes on the wrong weekend when the government changed the dates. Now they just do it. There was the VCR to change.....well many things. Not so now.
Our television and PVR updated itself as soon as they was turned on, as did digital radios. I had to adjust the mantle clock, the wall clock and the spare room clock radio. R had to alter his bedside clock. My bedside clock has a digital radio. I never know how to set the alarm on my clock when it is daylight saving. I know the clock will correct itself once the radio is switched on, but what do I do the night before? How do I set the alarm for the next day. Ditto phone. It seems with your phone, just set your alarm to the right time to get up the next day and let the phone look after the time change.
Digital clock radio is more problematic, but never say Highriser is beaten by technology. I switched the clock radio on and turned the volume to zero and overnight, I expect at 2am, it corrected the time. When a heavy and bleary eye cracked open at 5.30, it was very pleased to see the clock radio said 5.30. I knew it was 5.30 because I checked on my phone. The phone won't get the time wrong, surely.
Just the car clocks to do. Mine is easy, with a twist of a knob. R's is very complicated and requires a read of the car manual each time change. (I played with the clock while sitting in traffic on my slow journey home from work because there are too many people in Melbourne. I worked it out, but it wasn't easy)
Later: I forgot the microwave clock. It is a shocker to set. It took R and myself five minutes to work it out when it was new. Now we have forgotten. We might just leave it for a few months and then it will once again be correct.
