Just a reminder that for most Canadians, tonight (Saturday, October 30th) is the night to turn your clock back one hour.
So if your clock says 1 AM, turn it back to midnight and enjoy your nice looooong sleep!

Forgot to do it last night... Woke up at 0630 to find it really was 0530 - my PB12 told me - except my celphone said it was 0730! Now I am confused (easily done at this hour) - I have time to figure it out before Nascar starts at Atlanta this afternoon...
I was going to ask if anyone was dumb enough to believe we actually save daylight, but then I remembered the recent story about GeeDubbya wanting 4 weeks more (starting 2007???). And there are actual numbers to show an enrgy saving related.....
My fancy new dualie G5 sems to automatically KNOW when daylight savings time changes. (it even seems to know if I've fed my cat that day!)
But...then again...my old G4 400 also seemed to know this stuff. (to be honest...I probably made an input when I first got the thing, one that would keep track of this stuff...)
But still and all...I've worked intimately with Windows crap (for YEARS) in the oilpatch...(12 to 16 hours per day, every day for several months at a stretch)
And even when it was actually functioning properly (rarely), it never kept track of the more intimate dates in my little world like my Mac does. Not accurately, at least. (it was too busy crashing and losing data to keep track of signifigant dates in my life...)
Nowadays, I look over at this G5 Dually that sits next to me, and I am so totally impressed by how well it works, and how little grief it gives me, that I just want to HUG it! Regularly.
PC guys who use Microsoft/Windows boxes often want to smash their computers. I hear this all of the time...
On the other hand...I flat out LOVE my Apple /Macintosh.
