BST By The Hour

BST Clock changes every few months is quite deceptive. It is a good thing that so many systems run on epoch time to avoid the constant adjusting of time clocks as it could become a nightmare especially if one is using the cloud environment where data could be distributed across multiple networks situated in different time zones. Adjusting the clock is not a good thing even if it benefits an extra hour of daylight or an extra hour of nighttime. We really should keep the changes in perspective given the fact why we receive more daylight or nighttime in first place. Trying to change times is artificial. Although, the notion of time is real. One needs to adjust the life to nature not adjust nature to the way of life.
