Since Daylight Saving Time starts tomorrow here in the US, you may notice that the forum time is different than is shown on your computer.

Here is how to fix that.

Actually, my Escape has the easiest clock setting function I've ever used in a car. Turn the radio on, push the "clock" button, use the station selector buttons to punch in the time, and leave it for a few seconds before turning off the radio.

As for the time change, it's just a nuisance. Whether or not kids go or come home from school also depends on the latitude, after all. I got fouled up this year for an early meeting because I guessed wrong whether my watch and phone updated automatically. (Both did, I set the alarm only on the phone, but the phone updated despite my attempt to set offline it to prevent an update. Then because it was offline, the other parties were unable to contact me to find out where I was.) At least the Escape had a predictable time display.

It is that time of year again. If you are wondering why the time on the forum doesn't match that on your computer or phone, here is why.
