    Both changed over automatically. Was in work at the time anyway, so didnt exactly forget, considering i had to get up a ladder and change all the clocks. Put them 5 minutes fast so i can call last orders earlier. I'm a ****

    The point morgie is making is that in Australia, daylight savings was pushed back a week in some areas, so it stuffed up on a lot of digitalized things that usually do it automatically. In fact, as I write on this university computer, it is an hour behind due to adjusting a week early.

    I'm in Queensland, non existent here. Seems more of a issue then mental health problems for example.

    I love it. Mybirthday is in the middle of June so it means daylight goes on nice and late for the BBQ..it would anyway but it's always a better party when you're outside alter. People complain of bad light when playing cricket otherwise.
