I hate the switch back to standard time

It gets dark too early.
More time for nefarious elements of society to roam and search for prey.

As it is we already spend most of the year in DST.
Why not just make it permanent.

Remotely from Penang

I saw on NomadList the best places to live and work remotely (HT: MR) and was surprised that Penang was in the Top 20. The Telegraph also reproduced the list.

The Internet experience I had when I was there last year was disappointing to say the least. Wifi was spotty in our residence - the signal kept getting dropped. Okay - it might have been an equipment issue. When it worked however, there was a significant slowdown in Internet speeds around 5 pm and after. I'm not sure if it was due to the pipe in our neighborhood or not but I suspect that people got home from work and went on the Internet and overwhelmed the network.

We're going again and perhaps we'll experience something different this time - hopefully.
