Daylight SAVING Time (only one "S") !!!

by gadurnell / February 14, 2007 11:39 PM PST

Hey, BuzzTownies,

Hate to beat a dead horse -- or a very live podcast -- but it's "Daylight Saving Time", not "Daylight SavingS Time" (or "Summer Time" if you're British). <pick pick pick>

How 'bout we just change it to be year-'round and name it "Buzz Saving (or Savings) Time"?

If everone says it that way's changed.

I don't know anybody who says it that way.

Given the natural evolution of language I'd have to say that Daylight Saving Time is archaic and that Daylight Savings Time is current usage and the right way.

Ain't is a word now. Things change.

At least saving and savings are words. I hope English survives all the IM Instant Messaging short cuts.

Why Daylight Saving Time?
by Bopace / February 15, 2007 8:01 AM PST

I don't get it. I have recently moved to Colorado from Arizona, therefore I don't understand why people use daylight saving time. Oh well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
