My laptop has decided, for the first time ever, that I'm in New South Wales and it's an hour later than it is in Queensland where I actually am. I have changed it three times so far and each time it reverts back to NSW regardless of what I do. Good job the door is shut or the laptop might be in the pool.

Does it make a difference if you reverse the daylight saving on/off thingy?

Nope still ****s it up. It's currently telling me it's 10.40 so it's gone back another hour since I reversed the daylight saving thingy . I'm in QLD so it should be 11.40 but am very close to the NSW border where it's 12.40. I'll do a reboot and faff further tomorrow. My phone tells the correct time.

Possibly change it to another time zone that matches what time it should be - I vaguely remember entering Peru instead of Atlantic on a website to get the right time for me or just get the government to change the policy so it matches your laptop.

This. Daylight Saving is a completely pointless pain in the neck. It needs to stop.

If it's playing this I wouldn't complain.

The world is screwed and it's not even worth trying anymore.

Society has built up a society where a select few benefit while most of the population struggles.

I really hate Canada Revenue sometimes. I had arranged to skip October's payment on their website 3 weeks ago, the website confirmed it, and what do you know they took the payment anyway, I hate government agencies.

Unfortunately iPhone's are overpriced crap. The one I had was constantly giving me grief and was threatening to stop working altogether, so I've switched back to an android phone.

My cat. Why cant cats tell the time? Doesn't it realize that the clocks went back (Canada) this morning? So here I am up an hour earlier as it wants feeding. Are dogs any better at telling the time?

No, dogs are rubbish at it too. On the plus side, a cat trying to wake you up by licking your face is far preferable to a stonking great dog.

Just got OH to cut my hair (was planning to go this month when less lock-down!) Just 2 inches off the back I said! Then the ominous words "It will soon grow"! Now back is shorter than the sides!

Due to have mine done a week oin Wednesday, but got a call this morning to say that, due to the lockdown she was trying to fit everyone in this week, so Tuesday it will be, save me looking like a shaggy sheep.
