How many of us forgot to change profile time as well as putting the clocks forward last weekend :oops: ?

Neither of us realised it was clocks-going-forward day until Colin went to look at the Sky TV guide at 1:00 am and couldn't get it to show anything earlier than 2:00 am. That was a bit of a giveaway!

I've never bothered to mess with any forum profiles. GMT is good enough. It hardly makes a difference.

I sincerely hope you all remembered to put 'em forward again - and lost an hour's sleep :D ! Don't forget to amend the time setting on your profile acordingly......

I'm so glad we are fixed on GMT all year round and no fiddling with the clocks. :P

Oh you should see the moans and groans in the papers and on TV Letters pages, half the people seem to want Summer Time all year round and the other half want GMT all year round. We get the same arguments and whinges twice a year :cry: ! As the whole idea is now enshrined and enforced by EC Law, I doubt we shall see anything different for a while.....

I like my mornings to be bright and cheery, but I also like my evenings to be dark and "ooh close the curtains and light the fire" -y.

There's something slightly disturbing about it still being light at 9.30 in the evening as it will be soon. It must be the vampire in me.

Well, here we are again! Time to put those clocks back by one hour in the UK, Europe and probably many other places as well - and please don't forget to change your profile setting - GMT in the UK or, as this new version of phpBB insists on calling it... UTC, Western European Time, Greenwich Mean Time.
