    Not up in Scotland, club would stay open to 3am as per usual on the last weekend of october - only that really was the equivilent of 4am. The staff IIRC were renumerated for that extra hour.

    That extra hour of drinking really separated the men from the boys :D:D

    Alas if what you see is true, then its a sad day :(

    We always used to get an extra hour in the clubs s the clocks went back at 2.00 to 1.00 :bannana:

    Now it's a chance to have an extra hour chilling in bed before the day's chores begin. Will be nice - apart from dark before 6.00pm tomorrow evening :( :(

    Didn't you mean this is the night you should put your foglights on and leave them on until April.

    That's what usually happens tonight... :D

    Well , i'm at the coalface ....

    Why is it light at 0650 ? i thought the whole clocks going back thing made the mornings darker and the evenings lighter ?

    For the last week it has been dark until 0730 here ....

    No - it's the other way round Howard. What was 7.00am becomes 6.00am therefore lighter. What was 6.00pm becomes 5.00pm - darker :( When they go forward in Spring it makes the nights lighter and mornings darker:rock: :D .
