That Damn Alarm Clock

Today I was cleaning out TFM drawer, and found TFM for my alarm clock. I wound up at the company website looking for support. Incidentally, if you're looking for The Effing Manual or support for Timex alarm clocks, you want http://www.timexaudio.com/ -- timex.com does not have any alarm clock support, nor does it cross-link to their alarm clock site. I wound up submitting a support request with them for the damn clock:

I wish to permanently disable the "smart" daylight savings time option on my T276. The manual informs me that this is a feature that I should be pleased with; however, I live in Arizona, which is a state that does not practice that heathen custom. The manual is singularly unenlightening on the topic of turning the feature off. Is there some secret button combination I must master to turn it off, or am I doomed to a twice-a-year unpleasant time surprise until I upgrade the dang thing? Otherwise it's a very nice clock that has served me well.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
