Apologies, don't feel like reading all the posts on this topic. I'm guessing someone must have already said this..

But what exactly has Valve been doing for the past 5 years?

Yeah, well -- wander the Blue's News Forum and you are likely to find information you had absolutely no interest in -- part of the game.

Most? Don't know about that. A lot of them? Certainly. I'm a full blown mutt myself, German, Danish, Irish, English, Dutch, I think there's even some American Indian in there somewhere -- but my ancestry has never really been of much interest to me.

As others have indicated, Southern California and especially the San Joaquin valley are in big trouble when it comes to water. And the issues mentioned here are only part of it. One badly placed medium earthquake would destroy the dike system in the valley in a way which would take years to recover, if it could be recovered at all. Basically it is all a ticking time bomb, and the question is when, not if.

Do I understand this correctly? We are talking about being blocked from following a twitter feed? Aren't there easy ways around this?

Tsunami footage: It is truly amazing the power water has.

Gymnast coach: I agree, miraculous might be overly generous. More like, "I know this kid has problems with this move, so I have to be in position to help in case she misses."

I wonder if anyone actually got the jumping the shark reference. I must be showing my age...
Pfft, of course -- mostly old timers here.

I was thinking something similar -- I was thinking unless you have some kind of water filtration system removing "all" material out of your water, how long before that doesn't work? Water where I live is reasonably "soft" but there is still some lime build up.

Huh? Those records are kept already. Using GMT everywhere would just make it easier to figure things like that out.

What? Just because you use GMT doesn't mean your local businesses have to open at 0800 GMT. Does it really matter if when you get up you call it 0600 Eastern or 1100 GMT? Does it matter that your work day might be 1400-2200 GMT instead of 0900-1700 Eastern? Of course not. It is a label and nothing more.

I see you also espouse getting rid of time zones altogether, which seems to be the exact opposite point.
My advocacy of getting rid of time zones is separate from my advocacy of getting rid of DST. And are in the same spirit, KISS.

If the world wants to be on DST, fine -- be on DST. But this having to change when I do things four times a year (yes, four -- because I deal with the UK on a regular basis which has different dates for switching) is a freaking PITA.

GMT for everyone? Hehe. I am fine with getting rid of DST, but be realistic. Getting rid of time zones helps no one.
What are you talking about? It will help anyone who ever communicates with someone in another time zone. So, when you tell your co-worker two time zones away, the meeting is at 14:00. There is no question about when the meeting is.

You do not get extra sunlight at the end of the day. The sun is setting at the exact same time regardless if you call it 6:00 pm or 7:00 pm. Especially as someone running their own business you should be able to set your schedule however you like.

I think we all should have the same time! And where I live it should be like it was!
I agree, GMT for everyone, everything, everywhere, all the time. End all time zones and "daylight savings".

Yeah, was -3 F Thursday, but 40 F+ today and highs are supposed to climb into the high 50s / low 60s by Thursday. Spring finally showing on the horizon...

Well if that's true I wish it would have the effect of getting me better raises. Haven't seen a raises over 2% in a decade. Three of seven of the team have left already...
