Daylight savings finally ends this Sunday

By johnboy - 3 April 2009 58

John Hargreaves has announced that we can have some light in our mornings again with our harmonised daylight savings regime finally ticking over this Sunday night.

    “Last year the ACT Legislative Assembly unanimously amended the Standard Time and Summer Time Act 1972 to allow daylight saving in the ACT to start on the first Sunday in October and end on the first Sunday in April.

    “The change was done to harmonise daylight saving arrangements with New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT so as to reduce confusion for interstate travellers and those commuting for business.

The clocks are going back an hour and it is suggested you check the batteries in your smoke detector while you’re at it.

What’s Your opinion?

Some kids will sleep in, even if it’s just by 15 minutes, if you keep them up late the night before. If you do this a few nights in a row, you’ll have shifted their body clocks by the full hour.

Glad this worked for your kids. Mine gets up at the same 30 minutes before the sun regardless of what time he goes to bed!

Nah, just a ‘P’ in English, better than most it seems.

Nice bite though, thanks

I thought he only had one. In fact there’s a song about it. Song vs Google, I wonder who wins?

Song and Google both win.

Google:       Hitler + “one ball”          1730 hits
                     Hitler + “eleven balls”    27 hits

What is debatable is what happened to the other. Was it chucked into the sea or is it at the Albert Hall.

Several versions of the song.
Hitler has only got one ball

Was it true. German army medic

It is daylight SAVING

There is no ‘s’ at the end of ‘saving’

The things that worry some people. A crowning achievement is the ability to punctuate and spell.
Did you end up with all the jelly beans after spelling bee vg.

Four post nutbag!

BTW, it appears that no one has told the mice that power Riotact about daylight saving going back to winter time. Even my computer knows it’s 8.55am and I didn’t even have to tell it.

This is cool, I can post before I posted an hour ago. Here’s anther one, to sneak in before “9.54”.

And that was in reference to Hitler’s wedding tackle, or lack thereof.

Ant’s comments are adrift in time of space.

Think of the adventure they will have and the sexy, yet empowered, women they will accompany!

Ha!! 😉

Mice as in…the collective mouses of the RiotACT technicians?

When you google a popular term…you get a seemingly infinite # of responses. You simply extract a healthy cross section, to consider for analysis.
Here’s the hard part: Making determinations and judgments…with your brain.

I know. You seem to struggle with it. If you need a hand just call.

All together now….daylight saving

That is weird – I posted my comments after Ant’s, but because the clock has since been changed, my comments have been placed before the earlier comments. Freaky!

johnboy 9:04 am 05 Apr 09

Actually the GMT offset was the issue, the server clock was on the correct time.

deezagood 9:02 am 05 Apr 09

All fixed now ant

Goodbye daylight-of-an-evening …. I’ll miss you (and so will the dogs and kids) … back to feeling like a coal miner … going to work in the dark, coming home in the dark … sigh.

Google also told me that Hitler had 11 testicles

Really, I didn’t know that. And now its been written on RA it just has to be true.
