Longer Nights

Daylight Savings started this weekend in the US; two weeks before it does back in the UK. Until this year, the US had moved clocks forward at the start of April. This change has required updates to computers that automatically adjust for daylight savings. I have seen a couple of large display clocks today that have failed to be updated.

Actually that opening sentence is not completely accurate; it should have said that it started this weekend for those parts of the US that apply Daylight Savings. Hawaii does not use DST. Arizona, other than those parts of the Navejo nation that lie within the state, also ignore DST. Indiana used to have some counties that did observe DST, while the majority did not, but this was changed in 2006.
