It's that wonderful time of the year again in Australia: Daylight Savings, where we save 60 minutes of daylight by sacrificing an hours sleep. Hooray.

This would have to be the worst time concept to have been thought-up since AM/PM. Daylight Savings makes things so much more complicated when converting time zones.

When they decided that we should get an extra hour to spend in the sun, they thought we'd achieve that by putting everybody's clocks forward an hour.

They got it all wrong. If you want everybody to spend an extra hour in the sun, just tell all workplaces to open an hour earlier (and close an hour earlier). That way, everybody gets to spend an extra hour in the sun, whilst still sacrificing an hour of sleep; but the clocks remain the same, the time zone's are normal.
