in reply to Daylight saving time in my region should be...

Personally, i find DST a bit annoying, but i learned to cope.

Speaking as a professional system administrator and software developer: Whoever invented the darn thing should be hung, drawn and quartered. Repeatedly. Make that a double feature together with whoever came up with leap years and leap seconds.

Most governments would have probably already stopped using what is essentially two time zones in one region - but couldn't because that would be more complicated than just keeping that mess. I think this snippet of BBC's comedy series "Yes, Minister" illustrates it very well how that sort of political thinking works.

Note: Since the clip seemingly was uploaded by BBC itself, i don't think it's any kind of copyright violation to link it here...

Don't use '#ff0000':
use Acme::AutoColor; my $redcolor = RED();
All colors subject to change without notice.
