Samuel’s Blog Year In Review: April 2005 Samuel In Dolgnwot: Series 2, Episode 5

Daylight Saving Time Ends!

April 2nd, 2006 at 04:23pm

I’ve now corrected the GMT offset setting in wordpress to take into account the change back to Eastern Standard Time (GMT+10). I remember having to change it to GMT+11 when Daylight Saving started in October.

It was actually Monday, October 31 when I noticed that I hadn’t fixed the setting, as I went to manually alter the timestamp of my Happy 30th Birthday 2CC post to 7am before hitting the Publish button right on 7am. I then went to the front page of the blog and was shocked to find that my post had disappeared, it was showing up in the admin interface but not on the public side. The timestamp was correct, everything was correct, so what could have caused my perfectly timed post to not appear at the right time, 7am, to coincide with the anniversary 2CC’s first moments on-air (7am, 31 October 1975).

I then started thinking about Daylight Saving, which had come into effect the previous day, and realised that I hadn’t changed the timezone of the blog to be in line with Daylight Saving. I quickly rectified that, and my post magically appeared…albeit at one minute past the hour of seven o’clock.

Just looking back on that post about 2CC’s birthday, and John Kerr appears in it wishing 2CC a happy birthday!
