The clocks went forward 1hour today (in the UK) which puts us on British Summer Time ... but where are we now in relation to the rest of the world and Mudcat Central in particular?

Daylight Saving Time began at the beginning of March this year. Mudcat is on Eastern Daylight Saving Time. When we are both on "summery" time, I assume the usual 5 hour difference is maintained. (I think it is 5 hours)

You're exactly 12 hours behind NZ while we're also on daylight saving but in another week we will change back.
6:30am Mudcat time is 11:30pm NZ summer time and 11:30am British summer time.

Well we won the Formula 1 Grand prix. We were certainly on the Button there.

So its 6 hours difference today then?

I think everybody jumps ahead an hour, and BST (British Summer Time) = DST (Daylight Saving Time) so the same differential would be maintained. Firefox has a neat little add-on-thingy called Fox Clocks which you can download for free, and it lets you know what time it is anywhere in the world at the click of a curser. (Going to leave that Freudian typo mis-spelling in, because if there's one thing I do NOT need, it's yet more time-eating distractions from my computer.)

I used to hate Daylight Saving Time when I was a kid. Meant I had to go to bed when the sky outside was still bright blue and it always felt like being cheated.

The gospel according to FoxClox says it's still 5 hours between us and the hub of the known universe that is Mudcat Central.

Some years ago the Premier of Queensland was an oafish peanut farmer. When the question of whether the State should adopt daylight saving came up in Parliament he spoke against it on the grounds that it wasn't fair to wake up the cows for milking an hour earlier, and that his wife thought the extra hour of sunlight would fade her curtains.

It's very dark at wake-up time these mornings. I can't wait to get back to normal time but NZ has delayed daylight saving this year and I'm guessing it won't stay light at 6:10am for very long. Then we'll be heading for winter again while you guys start enjoying summer.
I don't care if my curtains fade - I like the sun!

"Bed in summer
by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)
from A Child's Garden of Verses, published 1885

In winter I get up at night,
And dress by yellow candle light.
In summer, quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.

I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people's feet
Still going past me in the street.

And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?

It's all a con. The damn government steals an hour of my life in Summer and then returns it (without interst) in Winter. I want that extra hour in Summer not Winter!

George
Thats makes you a lot younger than me. Am I jealous? Yes i bloody am.

Anyway you are about 2 hours from Faldingworth which might put you at 3 hours in front of Mudcat. Does that make sense. No, its all aload of double Dutch.
