Ok, that's just painful.

Thanks for the reminder to reread the book!

(I'm apparently low on the tech totem pole: I had two to change, and I've only managed one so far....)

Two: Clock in the kitchen (off the wall for painting) and clock in the living room.

Everything else (clock in phone, TV set top box, computer, internet radio, clock radio in bedroom) reset itself.

The clock in the church, on the other hand, just kept sweeping around the dial without ever realising that it needed to stop, take stock, and show the right time. I removed the battery and binned it.

Lucky i only have five clocks to reset. It's enough.
