Just to remind UK posters, and alert everyone else

British Summer Time (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Summer_Time) Ends tonight (Or technically at 02:00 tomorrow morning) when clocks are put back one hour.

Proposed but not originally by this man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Willett)

Same thing in (most of) the US. (There are someplaces that do not use Daylight Saving Time, so they won't have to change.)

Not only in Britain, but also on the continent - this time Britain didn't manage to do it at a different time than everyybody else.

And while I'm on nightshift :mad:

a few days of woking out what the time would have been(ie what the real time is) before accepting the new time.

I only found out about a couple of hours before when I was looking something up on teletext and saw the time of a programme marked with a (GMT). There's a reason why it's done over the weekend.

The alarm-cat, who is accustomed to meowing me awake at 5:00 A.M., naturally did so at 4:00 this morning. It usually takes her about a week to get adjusted.

Oh yeah, i was really dumb and i thought it went 1 hour early... i wonder how they randomly adjust the tv shows do they just not show some of them?
