??? If you keep Daylight Savings Time, you won't have that Sunday where you gain an extra hour.

I think that by "keep Daylight Savings Time" he means keep the shift to and from it, ie keep the current system.

Yes, this is what I meant. I voted for option 1.

I never suffered much because of the time change but I'd like to live a year or two without it because as I wrote above I was small child when it was introduced and have no recollection how before was any different. I just checked, when I spent one year at university in Seattle in the mid-1990s they also had daylight savings time, so I have never lived without DST.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

Permanent Standard Time, obviously, which is a closer approximate to actual, astronomical time.

My vote, too.

As an aside, my wife is in charge of scheduling meetings with individuals across the globe -- something that's difficult enough to do most of the year. Currently, with various countries changing or not changing clocks on different dates, it's a real nightmare.

Personally, I enjoy the time change.  I love the "extra" hour of sunlight.

Agreed, although my youngest will still wake up at the same time, making the 'fall back an hour' moot. I suppose I could keep her awake later tonight... :-\

I for one really do appreciate those long summer days with sunlight until 9 or 10pm, so I guess I am a DST fan.

There's an idea!  :D

Now we're talking!  :)

Perhaps I should move further north...like to Finland?  And enjoy those long days filled with sunlight.  Question:  do they use some sort of black-out curtains these days in order to get a decent amount of sleep?  :-\

Realized that what I actually wanted was permanent DST, because I hate when it's dark at 5PM in the winter.

Well, I've changed the two clocks which won't change automatically, nd I can chill out.

Remember to change your watch too (Need to do mine once I can deal with going into my chilly kitchen).  And car clock.  :)

If we had permanent DST here, in December the sun wouldn't rise until after 9am.
