Slacking Clock Changers?

I just realized that the time on my laptop was still set to Pacific time. From when I was in Portland. Eight months ago.

Fortunately, all of the other clocks in our house are correct. Are there any lingering clocks near you that still need to be changed for DST? Come on, own up to it.

The VCR mocks me.

The stereo in my car still has the wrong time on it. I bought the car used and the stereo in it is not the factory installed one, so I have no idea how to use it. I was once able to change the time by fiddling with it a bit, but now I’ve forgotten exactly what I did to change it. So now it’s stuck there until I decide to play with it again.

Only on the computers I haven’t turned on in the last week. Everything else is fine.

Of course, three weeks from now I’ll have to remember again, because the @!$*! DST changes that will supposedly “save energy” (yeah, right) weren’t implemented on any Windows pre-2000 OS. Grr.

There’s always a clock or two in this house the eludes the time change. Now it turns into a joke as to which one(s) it might be.


What is this then?
