    How can you guys not care?!

    This is a HUGE debate between those that depend on their equipment being set to within milliseconds of the correct time UTC(Coordinated Universal Time) and those that keep insisting that 12 noon should be during daylight hours forever! For crying out loud! We're only creeping out of alignment by about 1 second every 18 months or so. By time noon is occurring in the night time, people will be used to it.(Besides, I'll be dead by then and won't care.)
