    I had put my bedside clock forward one hour before going to bed. Woke up though with absolutely no idea of what day of the week it was. Thought I had seriously slept in and it took me a bit to work out that it was Sunday and there was no need to panic

    Haha! Just noticed that the poll said "Nah, I put my clocks back an hour last night!", in which case you are two hours out.

    Clocks go forward for the start of Daylight saving

    Nope, didn't forget. The computer clock changes automatically.

    Well, I'd forgotten until my elderly mother phoned me this morning as she can't change the digital clock on the stove (same thing every year). She let slip that her alarm clock in bedroom is now the right time as she couldn't figure out how to change it last time.

    To save her getting really flustered I suggested that she leave the stove clock alone and it would be back to normal in a few months

    Guilty. And it's really thrown me out coz now I have to recalculate the time difference between me and the missus in USA (I'm not that bright)

    Musta been a good nite last nite

    Put clock forward last nite so not guilty

    Heard an interesting way for remembering which way it goes (forward or back) on the radio yesterday:

    In spring, the time springs forward an hour; in autumn(fall) the time falls back an hour
    (morganj): 0 is false and 1 is true, correct?
    (alec_eso): 1, morganj

    The two things I use to keep an eye on the time, my cellphone and computer updated automatically so there was no need to update them. Though on my g-shock I had to turn the DST function on and it put the clock an hour forward for me. I like that function, I can just turn it on and off and it does the calculation.
