Put your clocks forward on Sunday

By johnboy - 29 September 2011 3

Katy Gallagher is reminding those of you still using timepieces not automatically corrected by orbital hydrogen masers that you need to put your clock forward on Sunday morning as daylight savings clicks in.

“In July 2008 the ACT Legislative Assembly unanimously passed legislation to see daylight saving in the ACT start on the first Sunday in October and end on the first Sunday in April,” Ms Gallagher said.

“These arrangements give Canberrans an extra four weeks of daylight saving and will reduce situations where different times for daylight saving cause confusion for interstate travellers and commuters.”

Sure we lose an hour, but unless you have excellent blinds in your bedroom it will be easier to sleep in for the next month.

If one is to believe the media release the hospitality and tourism operators are the main beneficiaries of messing with the clocks.

What’s Your opinion?

Can we please make available radio clocks in Australia? (FYI: Those clocks/watches whose time synchs with a central source via radio wave).

It’s really getting to be a PITA to remember this turn back, turn forward exercise.

Yeah – those are brilliant! I can’t understand why we’re so far behind the rest of the world.

Orbiting cesium (or was that rubidium?) clocks … the hydrogen masers (and other newer clocks) stay here on earth in the control segment!
