For the avoidance of doubt, Daylight Savings Time (or British Summertime, specifically) is a stupid idea in the 21st century. If your work requires daylight, wake up earlier, and stop making me build systems that need to handle 1AM happening twice in the same day once a year. I dread to think how much money is wasted every year on engineering systems that can handle a physical dimension changing representation for 6 months.

Now that I've learnt about RecyclerViews in Android apps, I keep noticing apps where they have broken it. Foursquare tips view being one of them.

Minor UX problem on the underground: saw a European man who asked me "Does the number 3 go to Baker Street?" To which I said "all of them go to Baker Street". He had interpreted the numbers on the information screen to mean there were different tube lines (identified by numbers) running through the same platform, not just the order of the trains running and their destination. In the UK we don't give train routes numbers to identify them, but that is common practice around Europe. #ux
