Daylight Savings Time Approaches

The advent of Sum­mer Time, or Day­light Sav­ings time as it’s known in North Amer­i­ca, is approach­ing.

As a result, it’s time for us all to get con­fused for a while, as the hour Springs For­ward at dif­fer­ent times in Europe as com­pared to North Amer­i­ca.

In North Amer­i­ca, the hour goes for­ward on the sec­ond Sun­day in March – this year, that’s March 10. In Europe, includ­ing the UK (yes, we real­ly are part of Europe), the hour goes for­ward on the last Sun­day in March – which this year is March 31.

On Radio Riel we ref­er­ence all our times to US Pacif­ic Time, as this is the time ref­er­ence used by our orig­i­nal home, the vir­tu­al world of Sec­ond Life. As a result, the hour goes for­ward on Sun­day for Radio Riel. From then until the end of the month, the dif­fer­ence in time between North Amer­i­ca and Europe will be one hour less than usu­al. So for exam­ple, Britain will only be 7 hours ahead instead of the usu­al 8.

To avoid miss­ing your favourite pro­grammes on Radio Riel over the next cou­ple of weeks, please bear this in mind. We’ll try to give you as much infor­ma­tion as pos­si­ble.
