October 29, 2006: Time Change!

If you're reading this on Sunday 29 October, ask yourself: did you get all the clocks?

Actually, if you're reading this any time in November, you may want to ask yourself that question anyway. If you're like me, there's a display on the stereo that still hasn't been corrected.

Since 1966, most Americans have been adjusting their clocks back an hour in the fall. The "magic moment" is 2am on the last Sunday of October. Or rather, it was. In 2007 and thereafter, we'll be "falling back" at 2am on the first Sunday of November.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has the full story, and some nifty links to more information on Daylight Saving Time.
