It's nice living in AZ with no DST.  It confuses people from out of
state not knowing how many hours behind we are or whatever, but I
think it's for the best.  I've never liked DST and changing it by a
few weeks is a pain in the butt.  I can imagine the possible pain that
you will have with the broadcasts coming from a different time zone,

Luckily I don't have to deal with my PCs at home, but I do manage a
bunch of servers on the east coast at work and have to deal with them.
