Yes, it is "that" time of year once again here in the USA...time to "fall back" and set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed tonight (Saturday, Nov. 2) so you will wake up with the right time on Sunday morning and won't be late for Church or whatever other plans you may have for the day.

Oh thank god, I could use the extra hour today. I got out of work late, and I have to be at work in the morning. I've been running around like crazy trying to get some things taken care of.

Tonight, Saturday, March 08, 2014 is time in the usa to set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to sleep as Daylight Savings Time is here once again and time to "Spring" forward one hour. :)

I hate losing the extra hour of sleep, but knowing Spring is around the corner makes it all worthwhile. I'm sooooo sick of Winter this year.

It's so soon in the USA ? Here in Europe it's only March 31 ! (on the night from the 30 to the 31 so it's the 31 after all ! ;) ) Some weeks to wait here :) But I LOVE this DST and hope it'll continue to be like that many and many years ! Spring is coming and that is great :)

They changed the date in the USA something like 10 years ago or so. Before it was much closer to the European date, if I remember correctly.

Personally, I hate the whole time change thing and I just wished they'd pick one time standard and stick with it year round. I'd prefer if DST was the year round time, but I'd be okay with Standard time as well.

Yeah, I agree we need to just choose a time and leave it be. We're not really changing the length of the day, we're really just fooling ourselves into thinking it's longer (because we move sunset one hour later by our time but most people are just getting up as the sun is rising) and it doesn't do very much in our modern society. But it really is a big pain. My boyfriend is a software programmer and the changing times messes up a lot of things on his programs. There's only so much you can automate for the type of programming he does.

It also messed me up on my sleep yesterday. I definitely slept in late yesterday for my standard - without the time change, it would've been 9:30 AM, which is quite late for me even on a weekend (I must've been pretty beat, lol). But thanks to the time change, it was 10:30 and I'm willing to admit I was a bit annoyed since I had a fair bit of schoolwork to do.

I hear ya. As a programmer myself, the whole changing time thing is a big PITA. Our solution is to everything "behind the scenes" in terms of UTC, AKA Greenwich Mean Time, since that never changes. We then convert to whatever the local time is only when displaying times to the user. Everything is always stored as UTC.
