Yup...ours changed a week ago here...haven't updated the cameras yet though...I'm more of a night person than a morning person so personally I prefer having the extra hour of light in the evening vs. the morning so personally I'd rather it just stayed on DST, but I know everyone doesn't feel that way. I am also sure it is better to have daylight at both ends of the school day as well so that the kids aren't out walking to school or the school bus in the dark.
Deano - it doesn't really matter - it will be hot whether it is 6AM or 7AM and you aren't getting an extra hour of sun - just maybe an extra hour of sun when you might be out! Yes, I'm sure you knew that and that at least you get some cooling while you still might be out and about!

Thanks for the reminder. Like Tony, ours was a week ago, but I never remember to change my cameras until I actually need to use them, then I either end up having to change the settings before I start shooting or I have to take a few shots with the time incorrect on them. (Not a huge deal being off by one hour, but it is a pet peeve).

Damn - I thought I'd changed everything (I have a radio controlled watch and clocks, Digital radio with alarm etc. so the only clock I have to change manually is the central heating timer), but I completely forgot the cameras. Looks like the Nikon is updated by ViewNX, it's dead right, but I seem to have completely forgotten to set the Eos (only got it a couple of weeks ago) which said it was 1980, and the Fuji was an hour and 11 minutes out. Oh well, no harm done.

It changed two weeks ago in the US. It seems to be starting earlier and ending later every year. There is more and more talk of just staying on it year round. We are about the only place that doesn't use the metric system, so we may as well be out of whack with time, too.

A public consultation has been launched by the European Commission on summertime arrangements, in order to gather the views of those concerned and to assess whether or not it should be changed and potentially abolished.
An online survey, for everybody to participate, was launched on 4th of July and is open until next week (16th of August)

I would've thought DST implementation would be specific to each region?
I am in the north of Australia where we don't have DST as it isn't needed this close to the equator. But the states south of me do and it creates a bit of confusion, especially along the border cities where people may live and work in different states and time zones.
