Clocks changed overnight. If you're not seeing the correct time, click this link to bring yourself to your own internal settings. Then scroll towards the bottom where you see the DST options and change to the opposite of what you have now. Fwiw, I have mine set to automatically and my clock was correct. I only needed to update the master settings for the board, as it was showing an hour behind, solely for guests who don't have settings.

Anyway, if your clock is wrong, start here:

AZ doesn't do DST, but having mostly lived under it thought this was so true:

I hate you!

But it all depends on who you ask. Google agrees with you when I type in DST:


Daylight Saving Time (United States) 2016 began at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 13
and ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 6



But when I use Yahoo:




Daylight Savings begins

Sunday, March 13, 2016

and ends
Sunday, November 6, 2016






You have been overruled by Jerry Yang! :laugh:

Awesome catch, HJ! :thumb:



AK has been kicking around the idea of getting rid of DST. It's a silly idea and just screws with people's internal clocks.

Besides that, we have 20 hours of darkness and 20 hours of sun beating down at different times of the year, whoever thought we should adhere to the Lower 48 needs a good nut kicking.

It was pretty awesome. But Yahoo is awesome too. And when I save money at the bank, is it a savingS account? I'm so so confused anymore!
