    Bah. Stupid clocks. Always against me. When they went back in Oct, instead of it meaning I'd get an extra hour in bed like everyone else, it just meant I had to work an extra hour that night. And now, it means I'll get less sleep on a night I normally get bugger all anyway, and knowing the shift before me will be working an hour less. And to make it worse, tomorrow was meant to be a day off anyway. ;_;

    I fucking hate doing this. I have so many clocks to change.

    Plus, this really wasn't the weekend for me to lose an hour in. :(

    What's with all the people complaining that the summer/winter time disturbs their biorythm to the point that they tragically suffer from it.
    I saw a lady on TV once complaining it took her all the way up to the next clock change before getting really adjusted, leaving her in a perpetual state of discomfort.

    GRRRRR, forgot about the clocks, and had alarm set for 6.ooam (F1 time). Got up and put telebox on to find it was showing the end of the parade lap and the cars were linig up for the start. 'that's a bit crap' I thought, 'no pre race programme, I thought the BBC would do better than this.' Watched the race and then after it all finished and press confernce was done the segway announcer said something about the clocks.
    YAY \o/, I had sky boxed it incase I fell asleep as I was celebrating a mates birthday down t'pub last night and thought I might not be in a fit state to stay awake, so watched the pre race programme after the race instead.

    I know! I mean, it's only an hour ffs. Also if you're getting up an hour earlier then go to bed an hour earlier. It's not like anything really changes, at all. You'll still be awake for the same amount of time.

    Hope those people never go on hols to Europe...then again maybe she could get a Winter house in Spain, then move back to the UK once the clocks changed for 6 months....sorted. I'll have to charge her 200 consultancy fees for that idea.

    OK, how the fuck do you change the clock correctly on the 360? No matter what I do, it's always an hour behind when I connect to XBL. I've got it set as London, Daylight Saving Off, and 9:05 when offline. I connect, and it sets itself to 08:05.

    Have you tried turning it off and on again?

    Um... apparently so... That's a bit retarded...
    We alter the clock in October to save daylight, so surely Oct-Mar is daylight savings?

    Depends on your definition of saving daylight. The powers that be say we save it between Mar-Oct.

    It's just broken. The time will update manually from live, the DLS options have no effect.

    Okay, I just managed to fix mine by selecting a different time zone, then switching back. If your DLS options aren't working give that a try.

    My Windows 7 keeps setting the clock back when I book up (possibly when booting after going on my Linux partition). I wouldnt mind so much but the day the clocks went back it did it and my phone hadnt updated itself like my last one did... an hour into work late.
