I want my hour back, and my $3.19 too.

It turns out that Daylight Saving (not Savings) Time is a bust. I had always suspected that it was more trouble than it was worth, but now, via the biggest Indian in Indiana, comes hard-hitting research that proves that DST costs us three bucks a year in extra heating and cooling costs, even after saving some lighting cost. And that doesn't even cover the cost of all the hassle and confusion and extra programming that goes into supporting the changover twice each year. If you want to get up an hour earlier all summer, go ahead and do so, just don't drag the rest of us with you.

I've set this post to appear at 2:24 Sunday morning, a time that will not exist, since the clocks will go from 1:59 directly to 3:00. I wonder what WordPress will do...?

    so how did word press respond to your time trickery?
  2. If you're reading this, I guess it worked out ok. I wasn't going to stay up and watch it tick over.
