enjoy your extra hour of sleep, daylight saving ends!

daylight saving ends

Just a gentle reminder, Daylight Saving ends tomorrow morning at 3AM for all remaining states in Australia (except W.A.) observing Daylight Savings. States observing Daylight Saving are: New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, and Western Australia.

Western Australia started 3-year daylight saving trial on 3rd December 2006. The three-year trial ended last Sunday. In the past 31 years, WA has rejected daylight saving in three referendums.

Remember to adjust all your clocks and devices including TV, VCR, PlayStation, Wii, portable gaming devices, digital cameras, mobile phones... etc. Clocks on iPods and iPhones should be adjusted automatically, when syncing to owner's computer. (Assuming the computer adjusted to correct time.) Most modern operating systems should adjust back the clock automatically if the location zone is set correctly.

This is the first time that NSW and Victoria following the US's steps on extending the period of daylight saving. Government's official reason (better known as excuse) is to reduce the energy consumption. A very likely truth is to keep local business owners happier.

Enjoy your extra hour of sleep tonight.

more April 2009 blogs. (or 2009 blogs)
from iTunes Store:
I've already done all my clocks, except the car, will do that tomorrow when I go out for lunch to Petersham. Now we are only 3 hours ahead of Thailand and one hour ahead of Japan. That will make my communications that much easier! Daylight saving is useless IMO.

I agree. (Unless you are one of the retail owners and allowed to trade in late hours.)
