Brace Yourselves, Winter is coming... (Daylight Saving)

Post by AMR Garage on Fri 25 Oct 2013 - 12:31

This weekend in the UK, saturday night into sunday morning, the clocks will go back 1 hour, and back to GMT.

This is going to mean those outside the UK may have to keep a close eye on the TORA Race start times, as they may be an hour earlier for a week or so, until it is your turn to adjust to daylight saving (or not)...

The question is, how will you spend your extra hour?

Daylight savings, sunsets at 3pm.  Can't wait.

No, really.

Neutral

*By sunset I mean total instant absence of the previously faint Jovian-esque starshine from behind our thick dense everlasting atmosphere of dark grey cloud.

It gon be very wet and very dark for the next five months.

Hmm.. looks like I'll have to adjust the times for my event so no one gets confused later.



I'm in your series, snapping some pictures.

F.A.Q Time!
Q: Can I use your photos for articles, avatars, signatures or wallpapers?
A: All photos I post are welcome to be used by the community as they so wish. Give credit to your sources and spread the word.  Cool

Q: Why isn't my series included in your photo sets?
A: The reason behind that could be a couple of factors. Either 1) Said series has no replays for me to find on the storefront or 2) I'm busy. No worries, I will get to your series asap.

Q: Where can I find the link to your Flickr gallery?
A: Many ways actually. I normally Hyperlink the galleries when I post in said series, or one can click on the Flickr Icon when I post around the forum. I should also point out some of those photos are posted on the TORA site Gallery  Wink

You can also put into Google 'Time in London' and it'll give you the exact time it is in the UK. Very useful for time converting.

Bloody London, sucking up all the time searches from the north Laughing 

Left the studio at 5pm today. It was pitch black. It's winter. I could cry.

It works with any UK city, but London is the most known city. Anyone else prefer Winter to Summer? I don't even burn easily but I hate the sun Razz

Sorry, I was lampooning the usual indifference with London most people have.  Actually, I love London, one of my best friends is London...  Shocked

The Scottish Government would be better off just telling us to hibernate between November and March, these winters are just bad for our health.
