If we wanna keep doing these things I'll spring for an account, it'd be worth it to me not to risk anyone's employment.. my main concern was co-opting Jarred's idea. A bit better organization (at least on my part) would also probably be a good thing next time. I'll try not to wait until an hour after the start time to strap the car down

later times would work better for yall, right? errr, well, maybe.

to do something conducive for yall (which I am not at all opposed to, so don't take it that way), we'd need to get it rolling in the middle of the afternoon/noon local time. that's a bit of a challenge for a number of reasons, but we can see... it's also hotter than the hinges of hell in the shop at that time of day, so dyno type shenanigans might be limited (of course, it was hotter than the hinges of hell tonight at 8pm too, so, there may simply be no love for that right now hahaha)

Ah yeah I can imagine, from a random calculator it figures that 10pm in Alabama is about 5am here, and about 4am in the UK.

So maybe somewhere in between 10pm - 2am Alabama time? If I'm going to mess with my sleeping rithm I might as we have some morning beer

UK guys are 5 hrs after me (east coast US). So when it’s 10pm here it’s 3am there.
You’re central, 1 hr earlier than me. But if they don’t do DST, you’re currently 5 ahead of them.

Hey guys. Sorry, ducked out for a while there.

We do work calls with the US quite regularly, but obviously that's during the day. I think mid-evening (US) would work fine for me - I'm usually up until at least midnight anyway, so 7-8pm with you guys would be OK for me.

cheers

James

If you set a time (say the first or the second saturday of each month) to meet, we can post a sticky.
East coast 5pm sat. would mean west coast would get on at 2pm, UK at 10pm.
YMMV, paint the centers gold, yadda.
Discussion?

yep. saturdays are probably as good as any. so... first saturday, 6pm central?

edit: wait, I did the math wrong. 4pm central sounds too early though. 5pm central would be 6 eastern an 11 uk? is that reasonable for the overseaser's?
