Summertime

Post by Lamma looker » Mon Apr 18, 2005 10:03 pm

Julian,

I have just noticed a quirk in the magic clock that corrects for local time elsewhere in the world. It assumes that everywhere else adopts daylight saving time when the UK does. For those of us in the tropics where the clocks don't change it means that (a) we are getting ahead of ourselves and (b) getting older faster. Dave-by-the-sea would be even less happy...

I guess the aging affect of all that sun is making people older....not much hope of sun in the UK!

This appears to be a quirk of the forum software I've used, without an easy fix.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but I can't see an easy way around it for the moment. If I find one, will be sure to post it here.

Sun? In HK? It's mostly hidden by the air pollution and the rain. To be fair, it is around 26/28C during the day but with 90% humidity much of the time. Sweaty.

Actually, the clock problem is not that much of an inconvenience, just one of those odd things that happen.

aahhh i was wondering this.

in NZ we have already put our clocks forward for spring whilst you guys have not gone back then. so there will be a 3 hr innaccuracy when yours change.

when do your clocks change btw?
