It's just reminded me to sort out my lights on my push bike.

Going off Analoguesat's receiver opinions lately, it's probably 'Hammer Time'....

Russia had bad experience with the permanent summer time since 2011, and a law was passed to go back to winter time tonight, and "never" introduce summer time again. The number of time zones will go back to the former 11, instead of 9.

Shouldn't this be on the "Analogue Clock" thread?

Yes, a lot of complaints about that but that's simply to do with the sheer number of time zones. Hopefully, this final 'correction' will put things right.

I've been trying to set my sun dial back and forth during these funny daylight savings episodes ever since they started it, the only way I can think of is to move the Sun around.

But all that did was to start global warming..........Sorry.....My fault.

So, did as many clocks as I could think of early last evening, tried to go to bed half an hour later than usual, but still woke with jet-lag.

And now to find and alter all the other clocks what I forgot eg Clever Heating Programmer doesn't do the BST/GMT switch automatically, neither do the Cars. Sat Boxes sometimes do and sometimes don't.

And I recall from previous occasions there will still be the odd one I have completely forgotten - but (obviously!) I can't remember which one/ones it is/they are.
