The time’s changing again!

Tomorrow (30th March 2008) will be the first day of the so-called Daylight Saving Time (DST) for 2008, which means the clock will be fast-forwarded 1 hour. In other words, it will be GMT+2 here in Trento, Italy (currently it’s GMT+1). Or in a more precise term: “Less sleep” 😦 Only for tonight though 🙂

    I found it kinda weird when I first find out about this fact (I noticed when the time difference between Ina and Swedish change about an hour-you know what I mean :p) but to me it shows how much European appreciates time.

    @dina:

    I dunno whether it’s connected in some ways with time appreciation, but as far as I know the GMT (the summer time) is used as a reaction to the extended period of the afternoon (the afternoon is longer than the night).
    So still in touch with someone in Sweden huh? 😀

    @yudis:

    @sigitpriyo:

    AFAIK most of European countries apply this DST timing scheme. Last year in Bonn, Germany, the time was also shifted backward by the end of October. But CMIIW.
