Title: NH Free Time
Post by: Russell Kanning on April 02, 2006, 08:49 AM NHFT
What do you guys think of the idea of NH not going along with Eastern Time?
I was thinking it would separate us from the silly US daylight savings time thing.

How about daylight savings time all year?

Do you think that would work out better?
We could call it NH time.
I like the idea of not switching and being different from other places. Caleb said the USA today headline for Indiana caving was "Uniformity at Last" or something. It would be fun for us to be the opposite. :)

I grew up in Indiana and I couldn't believe it when they switched.  I talked to a friend there yesterday and he and I had serious trouble talking about what time it was, as he kept referring to EST as "Quote Real time". So I'm pretty sure that most of the Proles are against it. 

Anyway I would definitely like our own time zone, but you need the annual average of sunup and then make that say 7am even if it is 730am (ALL of India, for example, is +5.5 from GMT http://worldatlas.com/aatlas/infopage/timezonz.htm (http://worldatlas.com/aatlas/infopage/timezonz.htm))

You know, "My man Mitch" actually campaigned on switching to daylight savings time.  What's funny is that no one in Indiana wanted to switch, that I know of, and yet somehow all the polls were saying that people were demanding it.

Mitch said that people think of Hoosiers as "hicks" because we don't switch our clocks.  But its a stupid idea anyway, and I really don't think Hoosiers are thought of as "hicks" because they didn't switch their clocks.

But will the trains run on time? >:D

Actually, yes, just as much as they did before congress passed a law about what time it would be (http://aa.usno.navy.mil/faq/docs/daylight_time.html).

And MVPel the sun wouldn't come up at 3:30am on NHRT (New Hampshire Real Time) The earliest it would come up is 4:30 am in the summer.  This, of course, is all based on the sunrise time in Concord, when we should be using Laconia or someplace closer to the weighted geographical center of the state (Same area north and south). Basically I think you should set the clocks forward 20mins when you aren't on DST and just leave them be forever after.

From that article .... the government keeps changing its mind, so we can do no worse. They are even going to change it again in 2007 after this years Indiana change.

I like the idea of doing our own thing and calling it something without "standard" or "uniform" in the name. :)
I like "real".
Does GMT or UCT change with "daylight savings"? (I can't believe the UK follows our silly stuff) If not we could reference our real time by it .... such as NHRT (GMT -6). Or we could us Internet time BMT? or something else as a reference. To me it makes sense to just us any number that doesn't change. :) And then give it a cool name.

Civil twilight begins on June 1, 2006 at 4:34am Eastern Daylight Time in Concord.

Without DST, that time would be 3:34am, with sunrise at 4:09am.

http://aa.usno.navy.mil/cgi-bin/aa_pap.pl

Sunset on June 1, 2006 in Concord will be 8:30pm, which would be 7:30pm without DST.

20 minutes?


The 20 minute number is based on the average sun rise of 5:39 am, so you could add 21minutes if you wanted. And where did the 5:39 am come from? I have an XLS spreadsheet you can look at if you want, but that is 5:39 without DST mucking about in the sunrise (in concord). So I arbitrarily decided on a 6:00am sunrise average, so add ~20mins to the clocks.

Further MVPel you said "I'm not particularly excited about the idea of dawn at 3:30am in the summertime." Emphasis mine.  Dawn and civil twilight are not the same thing.  Twilight is the time when the sun has not crested the horizon and light is visible, and dawn is the time when the sun crests the horizon.

In addition to which I am suggesting adding 20 mins which would make Dawn on June 1, 2006 4:30 am which is when your civil twilight begins.

If you want to see the spreadsheet just let me know.

I haven't heard the term "civil twilight". In the military, it was BMNT and EENT: beginning morning nautical twilight and ending evening nautical twilight. Same thing, though. It was light enough to see and work, which is not the same as sunset and sunrise.

You can go ahead and add 22min and 47sec if you want. Me, I'll just say I'll be at the bar around 10 or around 10:30. I don't think I ever in my life said I will be there at exactly 10:13 and 12 seconds, If I am late, you must consider me to be dead or abandoned in a ditch somewhere, and
hey don't mock my sincere calculations!

20 minutes is a scientifically easy number for we in the know to use, while at the same time being simple enough for those euphamistically refered to as 'Sheeple' to hear, understand, and obey.

Emphasis mine.  Dawn and civil twilight are not the same thing.  Twilight is the time when the sun has not crested the horizon and light is visible, and dawn is the time when the sun crests the horizon.
The Merriam-Webster definition for dawn as an intransitive verb is:

1 : to begin to grow light as the sun rises

... and the noun is defined as:

1 : the first appearance of light in the morning followed by sunrise

That's the sense in which I was using the word.

Main Entry: pe?dan?tic

Now that the gubmint is forcing daylight saving on us earlier (and creating a mini-Y2K style computer glitch (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,2100064,00.asp)) I say enough is enough. I support NHFT. I like Lloyd's idea, but I think we should add another 30 minutes onto that. That would put us in the same time zone as southeastern Labrador and Newfoundland.

If you want to determine if a system with Perl is ready for the change, use the command:

/usr/bin/perl  -e '$ENV{TZ} = "US/Eastern";print scalar(localtime(1173614400))'

If it shows 08:00:00, it's ready for the change, but if it shows 07:00:00, it needs a patch.

Apparently the latest Solaris 8 patch broke the old-style specification of time zones - EST5EDT does not cope with the new timezone shift date.

I'm kind of amazed, though, that it took Microsoft until February to do a final release of this patch - they've had two years to deal with it.

Ah, you have hit upon the real root of DST: "jobs" and "schools", especially as controlled by the state.

Farming is driven by the sun. Nobody pays attention to the clock when there's work to do. Free entrepreneurs work, and sleep when they're not working, and if they're successful they have time for recreation. Students who are "learners" can just substitute "learn" for "work" in the previous sentence.

Humanity survived just fine on the "sunup to sundown" schedule for millennia. People adjusted their schedules logically, based on the daylight available. But when standardized, government-restricted "work weeks" or "school weeks" come into play, the big hand and little hand became tyrants. Jobs revolved around the clock, not the work. Education revolved around the school day, not learning. People started going to work (or school) in the dark, because the government dictated that they had to work consistent schedules.

I propose returning to a business model of "open when we're here, closed when we're not". And keep the gummint's nose out of it.

I have been thinking lately that Shire time should be some odd offset from the "official" clock. :)

It does make sense to just set a time ... and then don't change it seasonally. We each can decide what 6am NHFT means. I have noticed that many of my friends in NH don't wear watches. :)

The center of the Eastern Time zone is at 75 degrees west. The center of New Hampshire is at 71 degrees, 34 minutes west. (The whole state is from 70*37' to 72*37'.) So we are roughly 3.5 degrees east of the center. Time zones are 15 degrees apart (360/24). So...

NHFT (nifty time) should be 14 minutes ahead of EST (3.5/15*60).

You might be able to suggest 15 minutes to me; it's actually correct for how far east we live.

This just appeals to the geeks in the movement too much to pass up. The great thing is that we don't have to force this on anyone and let anyone join us that wants to. I wouldn't want to change the forum clock, but some of us could change something to keep track of it.

How about we go with a general consensus of this thread after a short amount of rangling and discussion?

   The nice thing about getting rid of DST is that many people have
to convert times in their head.  Airline pilots and some mil
pilots use whats called Zulu time, which is based on Universal
Coordinated Time (UTC).  UTC is based on Greenwich Mean Time
(GMT) which is a time zone in England.  UTC is used for international
servers, satellite coordination, and other purposes. 
BTW if you call the AT&T operator, they can give you the
time and date of any city in the world.  Thats important if you
have to call Riga, Latvia and want to make sure its not 3AM!

  So far it looks like DST is over according to the poll. :)

Some people use a calendar on which the day starts at sunset.

NHFT sometimes referred to as Shire Time is 15 minutes ahead of the death star known as Washington, DC.

We have the tactical advantage of 15 minutes ahead of the OverLords.

Plus, what a great conversation starter.  :D

(This is my preference)
I like it. We are very "progressive" here in The Shire. We are always 15 minutes ahead of the feds and our money keeps going up in value compared to the USD.

I propose returning to a business model of "open when we're here, closed when we're not". And keep the gummint's nose out of it.

It does make sense to just set a time ... and then don't change it seasonally.

How about we go with a general consensus of this thread after a short amount of rangling and discussion?

The quotes above characterize what I was going for by posting the poll. I'm glad folks have put in their 2 cents. :) I'd say there is consensus for NHFT to be a year-round thing with no more changing clocks twice a year. I suppose the strong showing for EST reflects that sentiment.

I like Tom Sawyer's idea. However, if NHFT is EST+15, The Shire would be 45 minutes behind DC during Daylight Stupid Time. I added two more options to the poll, EST+15 and EST+1hr 15min. The latter choice keeps The Shire at least 15 minutes ahead of DC year-round. :)

Sticking with EST year-round solves the clock-changing problem, but it doesn't stick it to the man enough, IMO.

Speaking of which, if you aren't on NHFT yet, you should set your clocks forward this weekend, and take special care to update your computer beforehand (http://www.homelandstupidity.us/2007/03/08/daylight-saving-time-begins-this-weekend/).

I'm not sure which is more stupid, the fact that we "have to" change our clocks based on some power tripper's fiat, or the arguments which arise between people who say "Daylight Savings Time" and "Daylight Saving Time."  (I haven't observed it here, but I've observed it other places.... :P)

I have pretty much everything set to the 24 hour clock. The only time i ever deal with pm/am nowadays is when I'm speaking with people. Otherwise my computer, all my software, websites, email, my watch, etc. all use 24 hour clock. After almost a year I'm actually starting to think in terms of 24 instead of pm/am and so I have to convert am/pm to 24h to internalize it. In hindsight I'm glad I switched to the 24h clock. Besides it makes me think more because i have to convert the times on a regular basis when i'm talking to people.

Chicago - Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is? Lyrics

As I was walking down the street one day

A man came up to me and asked me what the time was that was

on my watch, yeah

And I said

Does anybody really know what time it is

I don't

Does anybody really care

care

If so I can't imagine why

about time

We've all got time enough to cry

Oh no, no

And I was walking down the street one day

A pretty lady looked at me and said her diamond watch had

stopped cold dead

And I said

Does anybody really know what time it is

I don't

Does anybody really care

care

If so I can't imagine why

about time

We've all got time enough to cry

Oh no, no

And I was walking down the street one day

Being pushed and shoved by people trying to beat the clock,

oh, so I just don't know,

I just don't know

And I said, yes I said

Background Vocal:

People runnin' everywhere

Don't know the way to go

Don't know where I am

Can't see past the next step

Don't have to think past the last mile

Have no time to look around

Just run around, run around and think why

Does anybody really know what time it is

I don't

Does anybody really care

care

If so I can't imagine why

about time

We've all got time enough to die

Oh no, no

(What my schedule ain't frantic enough?  Give me a F---ing break already.)!

I agree with you about government-dictated time changing. However, Ben Franklin didn't suggest changing clocks. The blame lies, strangely enough, with golfers in government:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_savings_time
Saving daylight was first mentioned in 1784 by Benjamin Franklin in a humorous letter urging Parisians to save money by getting up earlier to use morning sunlight, thereby burning fewer candles in the evening. Franklin did not mention daylight saving time?he did not propose that clock time be changed. His letter was in the spirit of his earlier proverb "Early to bed and early to rise / Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise."

DST was first proposed in 1907 by William Willett (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Willett). An avid golfer, he disliked cutting short his round at dusk. The proposal attracted many eminent supporters, including Balfour, Churchill, Lloyd George, and MacDonald. Edward VII also favored DST and had already been using it at Sandringham. However, Prime Minister Asquith opposed the proposal and after many hearings it was narrowly defeated in a Parliament committee vote in 1909. Willett's allies introduced new DST bills every year from 1911 through 1914, to no avail.

DST was first enacted by a national government by Germany during World War I, starting April 30, 1916. The United Kingdom soon followed suit, first observing it on May 21, 1916. On June 17, 1917, Newfoundland became the first North American jurisdiction to adopt DST with the Daylight Saving Act of 1917. On March 19, 1918, the U.S. Congress established DST from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October. The wartime measure, however, proved unpopular among farmers, and Congress repealed it in 1919. Woodrow Wilson, another avid golfer, vetoed the repeal twice but his second veto was overridden.


There's a Real Men of Genius spot in here somewhere. "Mr. Daylight Saving Time Inventor!" :P

I'm glad this topic came back to life. I bookmarked this thread when I found this site last autumn because I thought it was great that people started talking about not obeying daylight savings time. I hoped there would be resistance to the government expanding it. I don't like DST because it is artificial and the standard time zones are already far off from solar time in most areas. I like how NHFT is closer to the real New Hampshire solar time than EST.

I am in high school and started getting interested in time and astronomy last year. I have found some other time zones that are offset fifteen minutes.

UTC +12:45 is Chatham Islands Standard Time in New Zealand
Nepal is UTC +5:45
UTC +8:45 sounds like an interesting place http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTC%2B8:45

24-hour time is also known as railway time. If you don't like that it sounds militaristic, you could just say "nineteen o clock" instead of "nineteen hundred hours." Just a thought.

For now, I'm in the land of Pacific Daylight Time. :(

well ... the current version is not perfectly correct for you or me ... so if I changed NHFT ... it would make sense for you to go with an actual sunbased one :)

Obeying any clock is conformism, I bet even sociopaths even indulge in it.

I would say anyone following a Shire Time clock are a little less conformist and more free :)

So ... I will change the time on my watch and this forum.
