Daylight Saving Time adjustments continues.
It is happening again. Despite deciding they didn't want to do it anymore, Europe will be ending Daylight Saving Time for the year on the morning of 31 October (All Hallows Eve). Hopefully irate clock spirits cross through the veil between realms on that day and harass the members of the various government bodies who couldn't manage to negotiate an end to non-contiguous time representation in their regions.

Anyway... to folks who schedule your games and don't natively use European time, be cognizant that server time will shift one hour back on the morning of Sunday, 31 October at 2 AM.

And thanks to the immense stupidity and ignorance of American members of congress, while the country was embroiled in not ONE but TWO wars, decided that the US couldn't possibly change their clocks at the same time as Europe... we don't change our clocks until 7 November. (So, folks in the USA and Canada... if you're accustomed to a particular offset from server time, realize it'll be off an hour for a week!)

Of course, there are a multitude of places with people smart enough to realize that their legislatures can't actually change the number of hours of daylight experienced and don't bother changing their clocks, and I envy those folks. Most places south of the equator which still use DST have already changed their clocks this season, with the notable exception of Troll Station, Antarctica -- which apparently adjusts their clocks as if they were in the Northern Hemisphere and by two hours... so apparently they don't keep their clocks with anyone. I predict they're gonna be plunged into darkness regardless. (Okay, plunged into constant light... they're in spring headed towards summer!)

The order of the world is correct, when you make these posts every 6 month. Thanks!

ooh, you're so articulate when you're angry!

One hour back, right? Spring forward, fall back.

Come now, Razmus, you know very well that the Americans think that the Europeans should adjust according to their schedule!

That said, we should just all do away with the DST nonsense
Posted by JackassRampant on 2021-10-22 20:21:54
Agreed about DST. We should either get rid of it or make it perpetual.

I'm still over-impressed by the energy you, @Razmus, put into informing the good folk of Fumbbl about this matter (was about to write "nonsense") !

Although I don't personnaly need it (oh wait... maybe I do :D), a big big THANK YOU for reminding us "this" happens ! ;)

Australia already changed to summer time last week... but only for some states of Australia... just to make it more confusing ;-)

@JAR - right you are. Corrected.

I was so happy when the EU voted to end summer time. Then COVID and none could agree on if they wanted summer or winter time all year round! Then we have BREXIT and the UK decided they want to keep these farcical rituals.
