Technically the clocks should go back at 01:00GMT 02:00 BST on the 26th.

But I'm not waiting up ;)

Hmmm, might be worth raising a helpdesk call with aventure about the 20minute skew though.

It is quite simple, revoke independence, swear allegiance to the Queen and we can welcome you back to the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and North America.

This will (1) make you use GMT/BST instead of all the silly time zones you have (pacific, mountain, eastern, yeehaw etc) (2) stop the McCain / Obama nonsense (3) give us a use for Gordon Brown (you can have him)

Might mean some of you don't get much daylight during the working day but just think of the benefits - we can even start a program of teaching proper English in school

:)

I never use the forum clocks, so they can always show midnight, for all I care, at least they'll be right, once a day! nananana

Do you have any idea how tiresome it is to be constantly told that one does not speak one's own langauge properly?

It was a joke, tongue in cheek, no offence meant - and was meant as an extension of the comment in

Are you seriously offended by this? If so I apologise.

janet - 26-10-2008 at 13:18

It just gets old, Theravad.

We don't speak properly.

We don't understand humour.

We're all thick, etc.

It's a stereotype and it's old.

I'm not so much offended as just tired of it.
