    I am pissed. My alarm went off at "5:30a" then I hit snooze till approx "5:42a" where I then got up, took a shower, and rushed to get my luggage together and looked over at the clock which read "6:00a"... Then I happened to check my Blackberry and noticed it said "5:00a" wtf? I then checked my computer and sure-enough it says "5:00a". What time is it??? I was not yet able to process rational thought (too early) so i just typed "www.whattimeisit.com" hoping that someone had registered the stupid domain and sure-enough it says 5:00a. Fuck. I look at my alarm clock and realize that I was off on the date (Apr. 6). So I pull up google and I find out that Apr 6 would be the day of DST jump-foward in 2008 had we kept on the old "pre-2k7" dating scheme. Fuck. I only got 3 hours of sleep last night and I'm supposed to drive to LA. This is not going to be fun.

    Fuck technology, and Fuck G.W. for changing the damn DST rules.

    Daylight savings is the biggest example of big business out of control.

    I was just reading the wiki on it, and at one point the fucking Idaho Senator voted for it based on the fact that fast food joints would sell more french fries, which means Idaho would sell more potatoes.

    Fucking idiots.

    Anything that lets me stay out and fish longer before it gets dark is fine with me. If you have a hard time changing your clocks twice a year...you have larger issues.

    Mine just has a button...but I usually just look at it for the time and use my cell phone as an alarm clock.

    I like the extended DST. Helps me get up earlier.

    You're driving to LA? That's like a 10 hour drive from where you are. Why would you do that?

    Because a computer was involved?

    Anyway, I'm surprised RIM hasn't released an update yet.

    Then again, maybe they have, but Potty hates automatic updates, so he's probably told it never to download them.

    yeah, why is this in C&P? his stupid alarm screws up? doesn't sound like a computer issue to me because his computer, blackberry and some website were all correct.

    lock/move this thread.

    Heh. I bet it has a horrible screechy buzzer for an alarm, too. What a way to start the day, with the mechanical equivalent of a naggy old bitch yelling into your ear

    And to think for only a few thousand more, you could've gotten the deluxe model that plays Beethoven while brewing you a cup of coffee and giving you a blowjob w/ prostate massage to get you up and at 'em in style.

    RIM updated this last year - they waited until the last minute too - they kept releasing updates to the updates.

    It was not pushed as an OS upgrade however.

    Nope, plain old alarm clock with a beeping type tone for an alarm... It sounds noting like a naggy old bitch yelling at me so I'm not sure what kind of alarm clock you have. It has never failed to wake me up...
