Get ready to fiddle your clocks! - Gazette Issue 10 & 11 - 1425 S.R.

That's right! It's clockfiddling time again and we start as usual at the East side of the Big Pond: You set your clocks backward one hour in the night of 26 to 27 of October. This diminishes the difference of Shire time ((UK time)) with the servertime clock by one, so the difference will be 4 hours.

But not for long, as Hobbits and other folk on the West side of the Big Pond will follow suit and set their clocks backward one hour in the night of November 2 to November 3. This includes the servertime clock, so the difference will again be 5 hours from then on.

The authorities still have not decided on whether to stop DST altogether or have permanent DST all through the year. Some deluded soul even suggested to put the clocks back half an hour to get the best of both systems!

Well, if now they cannot even decide to switch clocks on the same date worldwide, what would the situation be if some in the world are on a x+half hour difference? It would make things more difficult to plan and to announce, I can tell you that!

Speaking of announcements, ...
