Just in case you're wondering, Daylight Saving Time ends next week, on November 1, for the United States. On that date, us 'muricans will set our clocks back an hour. For those in Europe, though, European Summer Time ends now. I'm writing this at 18:00 my time, which is already past midnight in England. At 01:00 you set your clocks back an hour. I have checked some online clocks, and they are confused -- or maybe I am, who knows -- on what time it is right now. So my advice is to wait a while. Of course, since it's late there, by the time you read this it'll most likely be Sunday morning. So when you wake up and read this, make sure you set your clocks accordingly. That'll make it easy on everybody. And yeah, I'm no big fan of this either.
