    Clocks Change

    Post by Topdog on Fri 27 Oct 2017 - 11:21

    The only major industrialized country not to have introduced daylight saving is Japan. Equatorial and tropical countries (lower latitudes) do not observe Daylight Saving Time since the daylight hours are similar during every season, so there is no advantage to moving clocks forward during the summer.
     They change this weekend SPRING FORWARD, FALL BACK.

    The "Download Topic'It" button just takes you to the forum.

     I clicked the Android link which took me straight to the app in Playstore, installed the app and followed the instructions to set up my account, searched for TFOF and logged on - no problems.

    Gypsy, go into the Admin Panel on "Home Page". It's the first item at the top. I followed the instructions to e-mail to all members.

    I just checked your preferences Gypsy. You have "Allow members to contact me by e-mail" set to "No". And also "Allow Newsletters" set to "No". Probably that's why you didn't get it.

    Just thinking what happens to people who's work shift takes them through the clock change...

    In spring clock goes forward a hour so instead of some working an eight hour shift the work nine, do they get paid nine ?

    Then in the autum clock goes back a hour which means someone meant to do a eight hour shift only works seven, do they lose a hours wage ?
