How to Fix the Board Time

Postby Crossfire » Sun Nov 07, 2010 8:47 am

For all you newbies, and for us "seasoned" ones here who can't remember... if you have daylight savings time enabled on the board, it won't just fix itself.

You need to go to User Control Panel (top rh corner), then board preferences (on the left), then select "NO" in Summer Time/DST is in Effect.

Then you can officially kiss summer goodbye, and your board time will be correct again.

I wish it were that easy to reset my dogs' internal clocks. They were up and ready to go out at the regular time. I didn't get to take advantage of trying to catch an extra hour of zzz's this morning!

Is there a charge for missed sleep? The thief should pay for your overtime! :biggrinjester:

What's the point in ending "summer time" in November? Let's keep it year round at this point.

Back in the 70's they tried leaving DST active one winter. It cost the country millions, if not billions, of dollars in extra energy consumption.

Somehow, I just don't see how taking an hour of daylight from one end of the day and tacking it onto the other end makes any difference whatsoever in energy consumption, no matter what studies from the '70s may have shown. Studies can show whatever you want them to, depending on how you interpret the data.

Benjamin Franklin may have had some bright ideas, but this was not one of them! Leave my clocks alone. Time change annoys the bejeebers out of me!

It wasn't a study, it was a result.

Businesses and homeowners typically lowered their thermostats at night to lower heating costs. Remember, this was during the first "energy crisis".

Having to begin raising the temperature an hour earlier, with the sun's warming rays also delayed by an hour, cost money. There's more to it than that, but it's the most obvious example. I don't claim to understand any of it. It is what it is.

Let's take a play out of the leftist playbook.... According to Einstein, time is relative anyway. Therefore your time doesn't work for me. I believe in my own time. Why should some faceless bureaucrat in D.C. decide for me what time it is? I think a 26 hour day would be perfect - an extra hour of sleep at either end. And speaking of hours, wouldn't a 50 second minute, and a 50 minute hour make more sense?

Well, if your hours are only 50 minutes long, then it would take at least 26 of them for the sun to make it all the way back around!

You go ahead and believe what you want, and I will too.

At any rate, this is going off topic, since the subject of this thread was not to debate to worthiness (or worthLESSness of DST), just to tell you how to fix it so your board time would be correct.

Well now I know why my clock time was always off by an hour. Never chaged it to summer in the first place. :oops:
