But surely all that extra sun just fades the curtains faster ?

I know at least one town in NZ and one in Arizona where they don't
alter their clocks

All of Arizona stays on Standard Time year round.  They don't need or
want the extra daylight!

They are zoned differently.  1/2 of Indiana doesn't change either.

M$ is good for something.  If you check your Windows time functions, there is a
good list of the time zones in the world (not all of them though).  One of them
is Eastern Indiana.

Well, I tried hard, but reading this, I cannot resist: Know that Israel
(latitude ~= Arizona ?) does have DST and the changeover date is changed
every year (sometimes twice) by the minister of the interior. Keeping
several machines on a heterogenous network up to date with this random
number generator is not funny at all. I have been known to show up at work
1 hour early/late once a year or so in the last few years (sometimes they
move the change date on very short notice - like 2 weeks or less). Windows
and Unix hosts have their own ideas about when the DST starts/ends and the
ensuing hunt for mistimed machines can go on for weeks ;-( So there is no
need for GF's to s**** the clocks, as they have a government minister for
this here. This DST business reminds me of a certain Chaplin film where
other devices were used to make people 'more efficient'.
