Curses Daylight Savings (DST)

Even though we have moved over the border and into a DST-free zone, I still found myself in the time warp yesterday when I was up and ready to go at what I thought was 7.30 but was actually 6.30. I'd usually be able to tell by the sun but it has been raining here for the best part of a month (reminds me of a Ray Bradbury story where the sun only shines one afternoon every seven years) so that was no help. I only realized when I went to put my watch on and it showed the earlier time - and I thought it had stopped! The iPhone had done an automatic update using Sydney as its time zone - exactly what it was set to do - but it still brings the score to: DST 35 - Me 0.
