    I'm not changing mine. Screws my head up twice a year, and for what? Not worth it. I might be constantly arriving places at the wrong time, and missing buses, but it'll bwork out etter for me next time when you chumps are all changing it back but I don't have to.

    Just set your clock half an hour different. That way your only ever half an hour late / early and you don't need to fuck around.

    I wish I lived on the Equator. No seasons = no fucking around with watches twice a year.

    I used to worry about this but for some reason my kids seem to adapt pretty quick. If they have a routine of having a bath before bed, just give them a bath half an hour earlier/ later than usual for a couple of days.

    I don't think any equatorial countries are covered in desert landscape.

    From Wiki:

    Equatorial seasons and climate


    Near the equator there is little distinction between summer, winter, autumn or spring. Temperatures are high year round (permanent "summer"), with the exception of periods during the wet season and at higher altitudes. In many tropical regions people identify two seasons: wet and dry. However, most places close to the equator are wet throughout the year, and seasons can vary depending on a variety of factors including elevation and proximity to an ocean. The rainy and humid conditions mean that the equatorial climate is not the hottest in the world.

    I stand corrected. Sounds ACE!

    Bugger, I had forgotten about that. Takes them months to adjust. Ours have recently been sleeping a bit longer too...

    *offer only available in selected countries

    America doesn't change for another week, and Australia has changed already for example. But the same date's used across the EU these days, so I guess on a site called 'eurogamer' you're safe.

    Saturday night they go forward an hour.

    Thank fuck for that, bring on the long, light evenings with a cold beer on the patio.

    edit: this is the best one for two reasons - the one I just mentioned and also you don't have to set your alarm clock by going all the way around 23 hours, forgetting what you're doing and having to do it again until you remember where to stop. That pisses me off something chronic.

    Woohoo, we made it through.

    Sat outside last night until 9pm. Walked to the office this morning in blazing sunshine.
