    More amusing than annoying, and definitely minor.

    Tonight the clocks change, in the UK at least. I'm awake at 1.45am for some reason. According to my alerts, this post
    https://www.physicsforums.com/posts/5606899/
    came in at 12.51am today. Some forty minutes later I have another alert for this post https://www.physicsforums.com/posts/5606922/
    which is dated Oct 30, 2016. Which is today, by any other name.

    So at the top of my latest alert page it says Oct 30th, then there's a link to a post. Then it says Today, then there are links to half a dozen posts. Then it says Yesterday, then more links.

    I would prefer daylight saving time the whole year. But I guess minor timing upsets for two hours per year are not the most critical issue.

    Definitely minor - presumably most people will be asleep when it triggers anyway. I just found it an amusing bug. :wink:
