DST ended for some
For some, including me, Daylight Saving Time ended last night.

You might consider setting your CPAP internal clocks to match your local time.

And this is how:

If you have a machine that is not listed and you know how to set it, please let me know so I can add it. I need to update it for the A10 anyway.

I think you mean you do not -- unless you're on the Navaho Reservation.
Unless I have the "wrong end of the stick" because of semantics...

AZ has not observed DST since 1967. If you are saying you are in Pacific time during summer; and Mountain time during summer -- then we're on the same page.

Mine started last month but only last night put the clock forward one hour to catchup with the future

I haven't reset my clocks yet. It's one of my last remaining vestiges of procrastination. I'd have more vestiges, but I haven't gotten around to finding them yet.

I never understood that 1/2 hour time zone in the Northern Territory.

JustMongo,

I don't change my clocks (except for those that think they know where they are) but as I said, I do change time ZONES. We float from PDT back to MST. However, when you read the weather advisories during the summer, they still refer to MST. Go figure. When I was flying, AZ was always local +7 to get to Zulu (Greenwich) which all good aviators used.

Anyone knows that if you take 1 foot from the head of a 6 foot blanket and reattach it to the foot of the blanket, you still have a 6 foot blanket.

BTW, back in the 70s AZ did try the DST trick and found the energy costs actually went up as i increased the time in the hottest parts of the day.
