Daylight Savings Time ENDS

This is a reminder that since daylight savings time ended on Sunday, you may want to adjust board settings to show the proper time on posts.

--Go to the Board Settings page in "My Controls", uncheck the Daylight Savings Time box, then click the update button.

A reminder, or if you are unaware of this, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 has changed the way DST will be observed in the near future. It will now start on the second Sunday in March [March 11, 2007] and end on the first Sunday in November [November 4, 2007]. The act does require that the effects be reviewed and gives Congress the power to change it back if it doesn't increase energy savings or if the public hates it (Wiki).

Hope everybody enjoyed that extra hour... I sure enjoyed the extra hour of question writing time!

Well, it's that time of year again:

Would have been nice to have the old rules in effect... when it would have ended while I was HOME last weekend. The extra hour doesn't really do much for me here.
