it be not just how many shows folk watch online - it be how many they watch legally.

(In the UK) everything I'm interested in (which mostly seems to be comedy panel shows) gets put up by the broadcasters themselves (BBC iplayer, ITVplayer, 4OD, etc) and is available for the next week 336 TimeFrames (168 NewTimeFrames?) or more. I believe you don't even need a TV license to watch things that way as it only applies to live TV.

NO!, the state can't bend to the will of the church, no matter how compelling it may be. we are a state that search for reason before blinds believes, you may feel that what bring us together is our devotion of Time, our faith in a new frame, but it is in fact our acceptance of the existence of it, and our virtual presence inside this tread is was give us our passport as members of this new state

But the religion *be* T I M E! In defending it, ya re-merged state and religion! :mrgreen:

wait hwæt? be it?, by how folk discuss swich matters i woll-did believe that the religion be more associated with others words, like fortnight, timeframe, timewaiter, and of curse all the cardinal/Vatican Milliner's Perfect Customer talk, they lost sight of the true believe.

You fool. We codify the True Doctrine to help the faithful not to fall in heresy, this kind of order is needed not to bastardize the faith with heterodox concepts.
Anyway, the wiki says the religion is called Religion of the One True Comic as a whole and it is separated in Initiates of Time (the ones who lost their mind uncapable to bear the greatness of Time) and Timewaiters (the cool guys), but I don't think a real name for the Church was ever decided.

True enough, but the percentage of TV watch-did specifically at the Thing that keeps slipping into the future the station broadcasts it be decreasing. There be other options now, which allow for folk to watch flexibly, even if the official TV schedule doth not flex. For example, I'll have an few shows that occurred this week that I'll stream on-line later, since I have spent this week Waiting.

Or just the general confusion that woll-did arise from not knowing if this business or that an hath changed its hours?


The thing is, you're applying a different standard for DST because it's already in place. If there were no DST, it would be just as ludicrous to think of your Congress passing a law to make everyone in the country change their clocks at a certain time (even saying that sounds odd). DST worked when clocks were just standalone counters, but everything depends on exact, precise, accurate time now, and many systems are less flexible about this than people, so it makes more sense at this point to put the burden on people rather than systems. And hey, why do we really need moved times during summer anyway?

As for routines, DST doesn't stuff with peoples' routines anyway? Making a whole nation essentially jet-lagged is not my idea of a good strategy.

And the job example isn't entirely fair. That exact situation could happen for many other reasons too. The answer is "Tough. Deal with it"

I think that this is the first time I've ever been awake at the right time to see the clock change for DST. Just as the latest frame appeared, my PC's clock jumped forwards from 01:00 to 02:00.
And all because of a comic titled "Time", that's almost poetic.
