I vote for EST - 15 minutes, no daylight savings time, 24 hour (non-military) clock.

"The nifty time at the tone is now 12:06 NHFT." BEEP!
that would be 8) with me

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.

I could go either way. We could be behind them sometimes ... we could think of different jokes. :)

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'm hardly useful when I'm enslaved to a clock... some of my best work is done long after the sun has gone down when I have far fewer distractions tugging at my brain.

So stop looking at the clock.

I've done my share of all-night coding marathons. Not so many these days, since I'm old...

actually .... we don't have to.

I forgot that the government was doing this change. So I guess some of us could switch to NHFT or the even more relaxed Shire Time really soon. :) Shire time leaks over to Maine and VT some .... in fact it can be observed by anyone who wants to join The Shire. :)

One change that would be interesting is making the day start (sunrise?) at 0 and end at around 16, with 16-24 being night.

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

Yeah, Undead Peole

The option to display 24-hour time is available too. :)

OK, I could go along with EST+15.

EST is still way ahead and keeps getting more votes, but is all but absent from the discussion. ???

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.
