Well, there's 1 1/2 hours left in 2014 here in New Jersey.

Happy New Year everyone!

We are on daylight saving not the normal 10 hrs from GMT so at the time I write it is approaching 16:15 Local Eastern DST 05:15 GMT albeit some States have more sense than use it.

So it will be Happy New Year by the time you get this as it appears that yours was sent 14:22 here

Hear Hear.

I have always loathed daylight savings. Not for the extra daylight at the end of the day but because of the twice-annual assault on my body clock. If not for my pride in my home state of New South Wales and that in a general sense I don't want to shift interstate I would happily move to Queensland, Western Australia or the Northern Territory just to avoid daylight savings.

Here's a good map of our flat planet and its timezones. Still a few places to light the wicks for the fireworks.


Not sure about the 24 timezones bit though. South Australia is half an hour out from its physical timezone on normal time so there's at least 25 timezones.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

Brad, we don't worry about 2 hours difference in WA. We are 10 years behind the rest of the country anyway
