There should be an option for "oops, I forgot." I had to go with "No, I don't care enough" instead, as it was closest.

I always change my watch before the time you're supposed to change them (in this timezone at least), 2am, which is when I'm in bed. I'm just happy it's over, I hate Daylight Savings.

2.30 is about when I usually go to bed, therefor I didn't have to stay up late (relative to the time I usually go to bed (or sleep, sometimes I lie in bed with my laptop))

There really should be an option for "No, we do not do that here." Daylight Savings Time is a waste of resources, & I feel sorry for the people who have to do it every year. People can get up & go to bed whenever they want regardless of what the clock says relative to the sun.

The poll question makes little sense. It uses the word watch. Unless it is an automatic clock (not sure if that is the right term), it needs to be done manually. In my house, we have an automatic clock that is in the kitchen/dining-room and the only other automatic ones would be the computer clocks. All our other clocks/watches need to be changed manually.

Voted that I did not care.

It was fairly obvious that is what you meant. Last time my "manual" clock changed by its self I needed to get a new one...

In which case, I would not have watched it; because only family's computer was the only working computer, and I only use it during afternoons of Monday through Saturday.

All of my clocks are atomic clocks and change automatically.

Actually, you probably have clocks that recieve a signal from an atomic clock. I wouldn't want to stay in your house too long if you really did have atomic clocks, besides, atomic clocks don't automatically change for daylight savings times, what changes is how the data is viewed. Just giving you a hard time ;).

I seem to remember atomic clocks being based on resonance. *checks Wikipedia* "Atomic clocks do not use radioactivity, but rather the precise microwave signal that electrons in atoms emit when they change energy levels." So there should be no danger in having a real atomic clock in your house...if only it would fit & you could afford it.

I stand corrected, but my other points still apply.

I often do watch the clocks change, but this time my (irregular) sleep cycle required me to go to sleep just a couple of hours before the change.

I happened to be up, so I watched them roll over.
