ah, yes, how times have changed ;-)
BTW - my grandparents lived during that time ... I grew up listening
to the pros & cons ;-)

While we are wasting space on this topic, a computer was used in the
USA for the 1890 Census. I don't think any of us go back that far ... And
there is a Greek machine that seems to be used for computing that goes back
to 2500 BC! That was a long time ago. Think that people of that time did
not recognize the importance of it?
you're so cute ...
after all, those folks north of the northern snow belt - and south
of the southern -
don't seem to worry about the long days, long nights; they
stick to their schedule ;-)
BTW - for those who are too young to remember pre-computing days,
the month would either be spelled out, or abbreviated;
still the most sensible system to my way of thinking ;-)
Only with these computers, did some of these scientists decide
should add the hour, minute, second to the time format ...
GMT was the standard for centuries - Big Ben's still ticking
away, isn't it?

This ISO is as strange as changing the time twice/year
You're right! We should just have daylight saving time all year long.
Or if we want to change the clock twice a year, we should have
DST in the winter and Double DST in the summer!
