I still have to keep an eye out for the few microchip timers that "know better" and go on DST even when Hawaii stays on HST.

Not a big deal really. There's only the truck, car, motorcycle, microwave, stove, wristwatch, downstairs clock, the one on the mantle, water softener, and three telephones have clocks.

Hmm. That is a lot.

You reset the clock on the water softener? I leave that one alone: a regeneration at 2AM or 3AM is pretty much the same to me.

Not if you have the dishwasher timer set to start at 4AM and the softener regen takes two hours...

Dang, that is a fancy dishwasher-with a timer to start up instead of a plain old knob?
My appliances are truly ancient, I guess! But I do have a coffee maker and the stove to change the time on, plus my watch and the car. DH managed the old alarm clock by the bed, which has lost most of the buttons, necessitating the use of a screwdriver twice a year to change the time.

A 4AM setting makes for a great cup warmer so your first cup of coffee stays hot longer.
