Yesterday, I essayed a short piece over the EU wanting to discuss dumping Daylight Savings Time. Their idea....at least yesterday....they would open up a poll for a couple of weeks, and let EU folks 'vote'.
Well.....today, the German press noted in passing.....the EU computer network 'crashed' about an hour into this, from the massive number of people from across the EU who wanted to make their opinion known.
The network came back up today, but I'm guessing it's barely able to handle the traffic.
The odds of the public being 99.9 percent negative? Well....my German wife suggested that today.
It might be the one occasion in twenty years that the EU could do something that the public was begging them to accomplish....that the Berlin crowd could never do.
It'll shock me if more than two percent of EU population is positive about Daylight Savings Time.
Note: as of 0900 Saturday, the EU server is still crashed.
