My stereo has the correct time once again :)

I told Michael last Fall when the time changed and neither one of us could get the danged thing to show the correct time that we should just wait until Spring and it would work itself out!

TaDa!!

There are perils in making the change !
by Angeline Booher / April 3, 2005 1:07 AM PST

I wish I had not tried to change the time on the VCR. I messed up - all I have now is blinking. I knocked one side of the glass door off of the cabinet (a "put-together"), and can't figure out how I got it on in the first place! Which means I'll have to dust my tapes.:-(

I will leave my watch alone. Will just have to remember whether to add or subtract an hour. Happy

BY next Fall it will be correct.

I wish they'd drop this stupid time changing. It's outlived its usefulness and is now nothing but a pain. Pick one and stick with it for gosh sakes.

I guess it is good

thing for those that love to do stuff outdoors, or need to do stuff outdoors, after a 9 to 5 job. It does mean lots more daylight afterwork IF you work a 'regular hours' job.

For me, it's not much of a thing either way.

It's a drag to drive...

...in darkness on my morning commute after a few weeks of morning daylight. It feels like an extension of winter. Seems to me we don't need daylight at 8 PM.

I think DLS is a relic that should be done away with.

Funny that "ay-em" should be censored here. Someone needs to update the software.

Since I rotate shifts,
by Roger NC / April 5, 2005 11:16 AM PDT

and have different schedules repeating on a 4 week cycle, I can't say much about it either way honestly.

I just know a lot of people at work who work 8 to 4:30 or 8 to 5 really look forward to it.

Commiserations Rog, I've worked shifts most of my life

and now find I have no sleep pattern worth the name. Here its 9:06AM EST and I still haven't fallen asleep, but I'll be a basket case this evening.

Shrug, well was warned before I took the job
by Roger NC / April 11, 2005 4:48 PM PDT

that with being on the bottom I would probably have to fill shifts when regular shift workers on vacation or work a regular shift myself.

At least now on a regular shift, I know my schedule, pretty much a year in advance. I could get "pulled" off shift perhaps by someone with more senority, but not that likely anymore. Shift use to be desired, but with changes here it's falling out of favor.

Before I never knew with certainity what days/hours I'd be working the next week until afternoon on Thursday, if there was a regular shift worker off.

It's a bit ruff sometimes, but the 4 day weekends (once every 4 weeks) are nice. With Sunday time and holiday working pay, your yearly average is up a fair bit too.
