I’ve been searching in vain to find out if and when daylight savings time will come into effect this year. Instead, the answer found me when I went to bigtugboat this morning.
Though I’m unable to confirm from “official” sources at this moment, it will start from May 1st this year. Ubuntu’s recent update of the tzdata package didn’t contain this update either so there is still some doubt left, but I really hope it becomes a permanent thing.
Power savings may be negligible, but it definitely brings more light in our lives.
Well, the news is in today’s Dawn, the official day time saving would start from 15th April http://www.dawn.com/wps/wcm/connect/dawn-content-library/dawn/news/business/clocks-to-be-advanced-on-15th-april–za
DST will start from 15th April this year as decided in a cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Gilani…enjoy light!
