01:55 am - Pointless post, second of two
Is this a post just to illustrate the jollity of the clock having gone back an hour and so producing some amusing-looking but really quite understandable consequences?

Why, yes, it is. I am now off to enjoy an extra hour in bed. (My back is better than it was earlier, thank you.)

Spring forward, fall back. You'll never be confused between the two again.

Ha ha ha! Stupid LiveJournal. I quote:


Error updating journal:
  • Incorrect time value: Your most recent journal entry is dated 2002-10-27 01:54, but you're trying to post one at 2002-10-27 01:04 without the backdate option turned on. Please check your computer's clock. Or, if you really mean to post in the past, use the backdate option.


LiveJournal gets confused by daylight savings time changes. I have had to advance my clock 50 minutes accordingly.

Forgot to mention how I celebrated the end of BST this year

(Link)
I called the speaking clock (phone 123; 10p/minute, I believe - er, I hope) shortly after 1:59 BST, just to see what would happen.

"At the third stroke, the time sponsored by Accurist will be 1:59 and 20 seconds. Beep. Beep. Beep.
At the third stroke, the time sponsored by Accurist will be 1:59 and 30 seconds. Beep. Beep. Beep.
At the third stroke, the time sponsored by Accurist will be 1:59 and 40 seconds. Beep. Beep. Beep.
At the third stroke, the time sponsored by Accurist will be 1:59 and 50 seconds. Beep. Hold it, hold it...
You really are a sad case, aren't you? Haven't you got anything better to do at 2 o'clock on a Sunday morning?
At the third stroke, the time sponsored by Accurist will be 1 o'clock and 10 seconds. Beep. Beep. Beep."

I normally have to pay 75p/minute for quality automated telephonic abuse like that. Bonus.
