So, who forgot to switch their clocks forward?

I didn't even realize it was time to, until someone mentioned it to me. Anyone else caught off guard?

My universal remote is telling me it's 3:35.

My computer is telling me it's 4:35.

DVD Talk is telling me it's 5:35.

Man up! Don't let technology tell you what time it is.

You tell the world what time it is!!

Screw the "winter-forward"!

(oh yeah, you have to get up earlier for work on Monday)

I certainly hope the day shift got it right. I don't want to be here any longer than necessary.

It's still 5:11 DVDTalk time here.

You need to look beyond the local interwebs for your constant. (and you need to find a hottie like Kate )

Edit to add for relevance and reference:

That sucks. At least you got to work one less hour! Well, that assumes your relief shows up soon.

I noticed on a local television station's morning news broadcast that they had the time listed as pre-DST. It was corrected a few minutes later.

I didn't forgot, but didn't realize that my cell phone (which is also my alarm clock) doesn't apply the update unless you click the yes when the "update to DST?" message popped up at 0200. I had to rush and skip my breakfast and morning exercise today.

I have enough of a buffer built into my morning that I still (barely) made it to work on time.

My coworker was late though.

I was up last night until 2 and then suddenly it was 3. Ugh!

I hate losing an hour.

My mom set the clocks in the kitchen and her bedroom ahead before she went to bed at 11. I set the rest of the clocks in the house before I went to bed at 2.

I forgot about it until I woke up this morning. I don't go to work until 2pm, so it didn't really matter much.

I would not have known it was DST if I hadn't seen this thread last night at about midnight before going to sleep! Thank you to whoever started this.

Why is the time on here still one hour behind? I saw people noticing it yesterday, but it still is wrong.
