If we are gonna talk using skype I think we will need each others skype usernames. It may work to have one person set up the conference call after chatting on IRC, rather than posting our Skype names/numbers here.

Looking forward to listening to the discussions.

yep skype is working - could not get it working with Klhrevolutionist but Menno phoned me - here you will find a list of Puppys to try phoningl
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/FoundationPuppy

add you name if you speak bow-wow

Quite a surprise once you open Skype and close it ( it dissapears from view until you get a call when it pops up from nowhere . . .)

Some of the things discussed with Menno . . .

1. Why I do not sound Lobsterian
2. Trying to get gphone to work (Menno seems to have tried extensively but without success of getting past routers)
3. Having IRC themed discussions at set times - this is a great idea - I will announce one soon

- sorry we got cut off Menno but it works great - next a Skype conference . . . 4 way speech

PostPosted: Wed 07 Sep 2005, 20:06    Post_subject: Time Zone  

This may be trivial, but let us try putting time zones, too, beside our skype names, so people will be able to synchronize times. As you will see below, let us try to use EDT (GMT - 5).

Example: Mine is +8h. That means if the guy am calling is -5, we are exactly 13 hours apart ( +8 - { -5 } ) = 13.

Anyway, a good start is check first the forum if the guy you're calling is online (assuming that our first instinct is login to the forum).

Edit: OK, got a date/time check with Rarsa's and Pizzassgood's help, so may I suggest a "prime time" for this? 10:00 PM should be the latest practical time, so let us try a time window:

9 Sept, 5 PM - 10 PM EDT (Eastern Daylight Saving Time - New York, which is GMT -5h )

For me, that is 6 AM - 11 AM Sep 10, as my time zone is +8h. My time difference is 8 - (-5) = 13, so add 13 hours to 5 PM = 6 AM, next day. I will probably be available 6 AM - 9 AM only, so 5PM - 8 PM EDT is best for me. So I said so in the Wiki.
