Egypt and disabling DST (daylight saving time)

After #25Jan .. and as any other revolution all over history, the country smells change in mostly everything.

the new prime minister of Egypt ..Dr. essam sharaf really doing a great job managing and handling our country problems, he have made facebook page and twitter account for feedback purposes. and thats the right way of managing the issues of a country -involving the county people-.

one of these issues is DST daylight saying time. they made a “poll” in the official prime minster website and people started voting about “cancel DST or not” ..  the poll ended with more that 80% wants to cancel the DST and thats due to the background that Egyptians collected during last years and the untruthfulness of the previous regime  .. some people think that egypt is the only country that uses DST (we call it summer time in egypt) , some other people think that only few developing countries uses it.. and so on. we didn’t gave ourself the time to just open google and search for DST and know the real reasons behind it and what is the countries uses it. ! …

From now on, egypt is no longer uses the DST .. which is (for me) something untrue 😦

I just wanted to share this little thought with you 🙂

P.S: I’ll write a new post about how to change the DST time saving inside Microsoft window.
