THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT : daylight savings Sunday a.k.a. "why DT is all wrong"

Long story short, the DT tomorrow will be one hour off from the time you're used to.
___

As some of you might know, the Tranquility server cluster operates on "Iceland time" (even if it's physically located in London), which is fixed all year round to be pretty much the same as GMT//UTC.
They don't have "daylight savings time" adjustments in Iceland, so TQ doesn't have it either.

The USA have enacted their DST adjustments two weekends ago, but all of Europe and several other countries are adjusting all their clocks forward one hour tonight.
For more details on when that's happening for each country : Linkage

Don't get your panties in a bunch, there's nothing wrong with the server, it's just you forgot the EVE time shifted from your time by one hour.
Well, except in case there actually will be something wrong with the server right then, but, meh, who can know for sure.

I agree, get rid daylight savings world wide.

1. as someone in a state without daylight savings who deals with people in states with daylight savings on a regular basis it makes it hard to do my job (yes this would also be solved by apply daylights savings every where but but the option is ruled out in the next 2 points)
2. as someone who suffers insomina my sleep patterns get screwed up for 2-3 weeks each time daylight savings goes on and off, this is a health issue.
3. as a system administrator, I am tired of having the check the daylight savings settings are going to change corretly twice a year, expecially when they keep changing the dates.

I was actually shocked by a distinct lack of such threads two weeks ago when the USA switched times Smile
Well, there might have been some, but I haven't noticed them, so there couldn't have been many.

Iceland doesn't have DST? That's nice, I whish they'd cut that crap here too. It's so damn pointless anyway.

Not that one hour would do any good in Iceland anyway. They'd probably have to adjust it by like 10 hours...

A: don't implement it yourself.
B: set all your clocks, watches, timers to EVE time at home, fun when you have visitors. Razz

But yeah, DST not good for anything. Mad

The only reason why the USA's Daylight saving changed from the rest of the world was to "save energy"...

Why should they? 6 Months Dark / 6 Months Light so no need for Daylight Savings :) *Ironic*

I know that. But why does Akira think Euros need a special hand holding public announcement for something that has been going on for as long as most players can remember.

Because traditionally some british players think TQ runs their local time.

Thank you for this public service announcement. I do think there is something wrong with my panties anyway though.

I have no idea why "Akira" would think that, but I, having been around the forums for the past several years around the downtime just after daylight savings time adjustments can certainly say that the AVERAGE number of threads with titles a variation of either "why is TQ still down" or "is there no DT today" was somewhere around 5.5 for each event.

Considering I was born, raised and still live in a country which is technically part of Europe, I can safely say it was merely an observation.
