I HATE this time of year!by the solstice it is dark before 1600, and of course it isn't light until almost 8 in the morning. whenever I start feeling really sorry for myself, I think of the Canada... everyone is more north and darker than here. normally what gets me through the winters is teaching skiing but by all accounts we are to have a warm low snow winter

I read somewhere that it's based on the old Roman calendar, but I have no idea if DST is a part of it.

We don't have DS time in our state (Queensland). I think the states that do turned their clocks forward a couple of weeks ago. It'd be nice to have DS, to extend the evening beach time here. Unfortunately as well, the birds wake with the slightest of light in the east, and that can be before 4am in summer (the noise comes across from the headland east of us in a slow, brightening wave). We're lucky this year, in that we've neither Koel nor Blue-Faced "pluck-a-duck" bird nor Butcher Bird waking by our bedroom window.

Cheers,
Marc

Yes, but there are several contradictory dates. The system changed several times.

Don't forget us Europeans... Considering New York is on the same height as Madrid, which we generally find far in the south...

No thank you, I don't care for any! And being in one of the two states where no one else want's any either, I don't have to have any!

What annoys me the most is that Daylight Saving switching date now moves around. It used to be set so computer maufacturers automated it. Now the automatic setting and the real setting don't match.

This year I had 2 computers and 2 pocket pcs and a phone that I had to change. THEN about two weeks later they changed themselves and I had to change them back.
Grr!

Oh, btw, what took you guys so long to change? We switched (the opposite way...) several weeks ago.
