Time Change Heads Up

As you know, this coming Sunday morning at 2:00 in the U.S. we are supposed to set our clocks back an hour as we transition from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time. My laptop, my iPhone, and my Apple Watch do this automagically, but I have to manually set most of the other clocks in my home back an hour.

Well, apparently WordPress requires some manual intervention as well.

I schedule my daily FOWC with Fandango prompts up to two weeks in advance. I have them set to post at 12:01 a.m. Pacific time each day. But this morning I was checking on my scheduled posts and discovered, much to my chagrin, that posts scheduled after 2 a.m. on November 1st were now scheduled to be posted an hour earlier. So instead of my November 2nd and thereafter FOWC with Fandango posts being published at 12:01 a.m. on the specified date, they were all scheduled to post at 11:01 p.m. the night before.

So, just a heads up for those of you who schedule your posts in advance. Check to see that they are, in fact, scheduled to post on the date and time you planned for them to be posted. Otherwise, as I had to do, you may have to manually go in and change the day and time you had originally scheduled them to post.

    Ours went back last weekend and I noticed a funny on a scheduled post, too. But for the sake of just an hour, I wasn’t bothered.
    Do you guys have some kind of radio signal that devices can tune into to get the time? Most of our clocks now tune into this signal periodically and set themselves. We only needed to change one, I think.

      I don’t think, other than my laptop, iPhone, and Apple Watch, any other clocks I have in my house do that automatically.

    Been there and done that. Luckily we don’t mess with time in Pakistan. We just change school and work timing in winter and summer. Easier that way.

    We went forward of course but that was nearly a month ago.. I have a couple of clocks that have to be changed manually. My bedside clock, which is electric and a battery operated one in the living room. Glad I don’t have to do the computers and phones.
