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

That's called the "silent majority." :)

or the people who voted before the nifty +15 minute thing came up :)

I have been running on nhft of est+15 for a day now ... I think my quality of life has gone up. Maybe we should sell the concept and have infomercials.

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.

Yep, because the Bible defines it as such.

"And there was evening, and there was morning?the first day."
"And there was evening, and there was morning?the second day."
"And there was evening, and there was morning?the third day."
"And there was evening, and there was morning?the fourth day."
"And there was evening, and there was morning?the fifth day."
"And there was evening, and there was morning?the sixth day."

Yeah, I shouldn't be so impatient. It's the impending arrival of the new and improved DST that has me so worked up. :blush:

I'm selling the concept in my sig. :)

A graphic to display the current Shire Time would be nice. I haven't found one that will allow for UTC -x.75 hours, if such an offset becomes the consensus.

Nitpick: it was most probably common practice before it was written anywhere.  :)

Everytime the gov fucks with the time I find myself singing this to myself.


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

I was thinking of that song yesterday while posting in this thread. Now I have that cool horn arrangement in my head. :) Of course, lots of early Chicago songs produce that effect.

I'm also reminded that Chicago shortened its name from Chicago Transit Authority after the namesake municipal corporation threatened legal action. ::)

doesn't it seem that George Bush is following Augustus Caesar and is starting to change the calendar or something?

We shouldn't have to keep changing "shire time" NHFT, since we will have no emperor. If some people want to observe EST all year long they will be within 15min of us all the time ... no big deal. :)
