Two Questions

1. Has everyone noticed the LJ header bar? It is all decked out for Halloween! Oh and Frank's wearing a costume. Cute!
2. When the hell is daylight savings time going to begin? I ask this because:
a. When I got up my clock said six but my computer clock says five (since I know it normally automatically adjusts this time of year).
b. I know there was talk of extending daylight savings time to go into effect this year as part of the new energy plan. Guessing that didn't happen...?
c. I want my hour of sleep back dammit!

ETA: Just looked at the latest posts and everyone is proclaiming it daylight savings end, so that's good enough for me. I am off to try and get a little more sleep!

ETA: 6:15am, really off this time!

I love this new header bar, it's much prettier than norm :)

Daylight savings? I'm so glad we don't have to worry about that where I live. Apparently, it upsets the cows or something ;)

Apparently it developed here after WWII I think as a way of rationing electricity usage. Rumors were it was to be extended this year to help offset gasoline prices and reduce eneregy consumption as they are prediciting a tough winter. I mean we already have frost! (Yay! I love cold weather!)

We have had it in the past, but the farmers kicked up about their cows getting confused (not kidding) and it stopped. I'm pretty sure we're the only state in Australia that don't have daylight savings. Frost already? Oh my it's going to be cold. We're expecting a long extremely hot summer, but *peers outside at the rain* I don't see it just yet ;)

Frank says Boo!
DST stopped this morning, so "fall back" and get your hour.

The new changes to DST doesn't happen until 2007: http://aa.usno.navy.mil/faq/docs/daylight_time.html
