    I didn't know it was today until I went out my front door and some intelligent real estate agent in the neighborhood had put a reminder on the door that was an ad for their services!!!! Talk about a timely, useful, helpful advertising piece.

    I don't blame you!

    Really, what is Daylight Saving Time to us, the affiliates marketers?

    When was the last time that any affiliate saved any Daylight?

    By the contrary, we don't save any energy anyway, we all have some kind of lights-on, over our heads, everytime that we're sitting here in front of our computers.

    They should come up with some kind of Night-light Saving cash instead.

    I'm not changing, just to F with everyone I know ('sorry, I didn't know you were already asleep, it's only 9:00'). Hehe.

    But will we still be here in the morning?
    Question I have is whether we will all survive the DST - "K" dimension? I theorize that it is an unknown vapor-time nano portal through which no one has traveled since 1975 when Gerald Ford instituted year round DST to save energy.

    When we turn the clock ahead an hour, how will the space-time continuum be affected? Will we pass through this vapor portal, end up back in 1975 and find ourselves wearing bell bottom jeans with white belts, 2" heels on our "Stayin Alive" shoes, wide collar shirts (unbuttoned to the third button) that expose gold chains and massive amounts of chest hair? (no offense intended to our present day NYC / NJ members for whom this is still fashionable)

    When we return from our journey through this unknown space-time-continuum portal, will the internet of the present day be evolved 32 years past where we left it, and none of us will be up on the technology? Will Google still be here?

    Will my ppc campaigns still have good quality scores? Or will my campaigns have been deleted in 2010 because we did not move to the "virtual laser holographic real time" search model? Will I owe my credit card company millions of dollars in late fees for click charges that accrued while I was in another dimension? Will the flux capacitor be fed by an endless supply of iPods that were reposessed for illegal downloads?

    Will Jimmy Buffet's book "A Pirate Looks At 90" just be breaking onto the top seller list? What will Cindy Crawford look like? How about Keith Richards? Will William Shatner still be Denny Crane?

    Where is Rod Seiger when we need him?

    I'm of the opposite opinion. In the winter sometimes it's dark before I even wake up, so I'd love to see the permanent end of Standard Time.

    I totally agree!! I'd prefer to have daylight saving time year around on a permanent basis. I'm an early riser and love the morning sun.

    The only time I see THAT is as I go to sleep
    It's beautiful, just about 12 hrs too early...also tends to be too nippy at that hour...

    What I'd really love is the perma-daylight of Alaskan summers, combined with the weather of Hawaii

    This might be a good reminder
    Thought I'd pass this on. Might be some helpful reminders here for those who have all the gadgets!

    I just woke up, and as I am reading your post, I just took a trip back in time.

    It's too bad, that when I went to make this reply I accidentally saw the calendar from the corner of my eye, and saw that I am still stuck here on old 2005.

    I might need to go back to NJ, in order to be able to wear those bell bottom jeans with white belts, 4" heels on my "Saturday Night Fever" shoes, wide collar shirts and my 3pc polyester suit again.

    " Looks like Godaddy is having problems I have over 20 sites down right now glad I started using 1&1 after the affiliate summit."

    Glad you posted that....not happy it's happening but I was beginning to worry if it was just a problem I was having. I had 3 down, now 2. Naturally the one I really need not to be down is one of the 2. lol This has been going on now for quite some time. Can log into the Godaddy site and access email but that's as far as I can get in there.

    Have only had it for a few years but can't remember it happening before.
