Our Forums Have Closed

Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The good news: Now you have the ability to comment on the www.Almanac.com Web site pages!

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Sincerely,
The Old Farmer's Almanac

Change

Sussexman,

Our Daylight Savings Time changed about 4 years ago. Any change wreaks havoc with systems (computers, old VCRs, alarm systems, etc) that have the time change built in. Computers can be updated with a software patch but the others have the date for the time change hard coded in their ROMs so they can't be easily changed.

I work for a computer company and you would not believe how much time, effort and money the last change cost us.

I personally think DST should only be for about 4 months of the year but I would not want to see it change again and have to put up with the problems and headaches that would cause.

I like the new extended time...

Think it was last year there was a thread on this subject. Some people don't want DST at all....

To each... their own ;)

Thanks YB...wow did I say that????

Thanks for reminding me!
Is it just me, or do others also find it amazing how MANY people can never figure out "do we move the hands ahead, or back?" with each change?
