Well folks it's that time of year again. In an ongoing effort to conserve lamp oil millions of people around the world are going to set their clocks back an hour. So remember, if you live in an area where this is practiced to set your clock back before you go to bed Saturday and rest easy dreaming of all that money you will be saving on lamp oil.

Well technically it's because midnight does't actually take place in the very middle of the night throughout the year it kind swerves around a bit and rather than have every one adjust their clocks a couple of seconds each day they just do the one hour forward then one back at two points during the year. Of course our crazy politicians in the UK want to skew our timekeeping system even more than it already is by putting us on CET (the time in Germany and Italy) so we're in keeping with countries in western europe (who should it must be said, be on GMT seeing as France and Spain are directly south of us). This would mean getting up before sunrise, in the summer for a lot of us. If anyone should change their time it's France and Spain and any other countries that chose CET for the (rather lame) political reasons.

By the way, for those of you who don't know, this means changing the times by subtracting an hour from the current time, not adding.

Ex:

8:00 now -changes to 7:00 when set back.
