I doubt very many, since the time change occurs on the weekend. One
hour is nothing. Don't you ever travel?
I love being on EDT, and in fact, would love to move the clocks
FORWARD in the fall to gain daylight in the evening. Who cares if
it's dark in the morning? But when it's dark when I'm leaving work,
A couple years ago I came across a study that showed exactly what you
postulate. Productivity decreases while accidents (industrial,
automobile) increase in the week following the time change, (more so in
the spring after losing an hour of sleep).
I would love to see us dispense with this nonsense, and I don't much
care at which point we S*&%#@N it, just stop with the F&*%@#G changing
of the G#$-%@!N clocks already.

I thought it was CST. ;-) It's a pain in the butt dealing with you
stubble jumpers, I never know whether you're on Alberta time or
Manitoba time. I won't say anything about the Newfs who are a half
hour late for everything.
Just curious, do computers take Saskatchewan's peculiarity into
account (like they seem to do for Indiana) and not change the time?
BTW, the Yukon used to have its own time zone, until some federal
bureaucrat decided it would be more convenient if it was in the same
time zone as BC. If you examine a map, you will see that all of the
Yukon is west of Vancouver. Alaska Standard Time was originally called
Yukon Standard Time.

1. Doug has an older version of Windows.
2. The change is a setting within the Windows program/operating
system. It doesn't automatically change the time because it simply
isn't set to do so. It has nothing to do with his time zone.
3. He keeps confusing time zones with Daylight Saving Time.
Have a nice week...
Follow Joan Rivers' example --- get pre-embalmed!
Unlike some other responders, I am in favor of staying on daylight savings time
all year and maybe doubling up in the spring. I HATE when it gets dark at 5:00.
I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark in the winter. Since I am
not much of a "morning person", it could stay dark till noon for all I care,
but give me a little daylight after work. ;)
I don't care if they remove DST or leave EST, but I wish to hell they' d put
one in place and leave it. Screws up my sleep for 3-4 days.

Hate to be contrary, but *I* prefer morning light. I'm willing to drive
home in complete and utter darkness, but I want to be able to have
sunshine on my way to work. Helps me wake up and puts me in the mood to
face the day.
Night, OTOH, is for the shop. I like it when it's cold, raining, and
dark out when I'm doing my WW. Makes my world focus down to just the
shop, letting me forget everything else.
