The fourth annual edition of the DST guide is here. It has been a proud tradition here since 2008, to let the viewers know of the delays they will recieve, during the six months of DST each year, as it should be our duty, until things change, and DST is reintroduced, statewide. But this year we have a little "helper". While this place generally lists events that have fixed dates, and fixed times, there have been times where rapid information is needed. Kuttsywood's Couchcushion will fill the gap, with a weekly DST update beginning Sunday October 2 (e.g. to, offer more detailed information, along with the 5:30 ratings segment, being rebooted in January next year.) It's this page's commitment to keeping QLD informed of the various delays, over the last four years, that is a key reason, why Daylight Saving, is still after nearly 20 years (the 20th anniversary of the last referendum on daylight saving in QLD, occuring on Wednesday February 22 2012), Queensland's talking point.
