That time should -probably- work for me, but it's difficult to plan that far in the future with my crazy schedule :)

I have no idea what I'm doing that weekend or if I'm doing anything at all, but there is a very good chance I'm free.
I'm "chag4."
With the period.

Huh, I totally cant do time zones correctly, i calculated it was tonight for me , but it apparently was last night.  Did it actually happen?
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Chag4 on July 07, 2012, 02:04:42 pm
Slept through what I thought the time was. Nobody sent me any messages even though my skype was on.
So I don't think anybody remembered.
 :(

hehehehe we sure do  ;D
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Chag4 on August 15, 2012, 07:15:10 am
Okay. I know we failed miserably the other times but we can do this!!!

Lets find a time that fits everybody and then together we figure out what time that is in everybodys timezones.
We write the time up, set alarms and shit and make sure we are there this time.

So, the two previous dates have been on saturdays, so does that mean that weekends are best for everybody?
If so are people free this weekend?
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Oddball on August 15, 2012, 03:33:34 pm
I should be free this Saturday from about 0900 GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) but cant do voice my gamer's cans with mic is Missing In Action.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Chag4 on August 15, 2012, 04:08:02 pm
Is there no one you can lend a mic from?
And isn't 0900 a bit late for some people?
Need more people to answer.

I am free all weekend. But unless we only get europeans I think we have to do earlier than 0900. Or not? I'm really bad at time zones.

I'm GMT+2. I think it would be easier if we found out how big differences we are dealing with and try to find a good time of day and then set a date that works.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: ducky_worshiper on August 15, 2012, 04:46:26 pm
I'm GMT -7 but honestly, as long as it's on a weekend I can really be available at any time.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Emp_Dragon on August 16, 2012, 12:33:25 am
I'll be away all saturday on an extended family meet-up (Dad's brother, sister, cousins and families, something around 70 people)

But when CAN you do it then?
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Emp_Dragon on August 16, 2012, 01:59:13 am
Sunday or some time next week
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Oddball on August 16, 2012, 03:15:17 am
right now I'm limited due to work patterns, if it's next weekend should be able to do to a earlier meet up.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Chag4 on August 16, 2012, 03:40:15 am
Okay.

Well, I'm not sure we are doing this right yet...
I'm usually just +1, but with daylight savings thats another hour...

I think only Iceland stays GMT all year round, so anyone not from Iceland have daylight savings time.
Which means if Odd is usually GMT, 0600 GMT is actually 0700 in Odd time.

Or am I just stupid or something?

Anyways, what I'm saying is remember to check if you added daylight savings or loads of people will be an hour off. I think if we had suceeded any of the other times thats what would have happened.

Oh, and unless we get more crazy than GMT-7 to GMT+2 shouldn't we be doing it in GMT evening instead? Like 1800 GMT which should be 2000 for me and Emp, 1900 for Odd and 1100 for Ducky (unless ducky didn't add daylight savings, then it's 1200).
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Oddball on August 16, 2012, 03:49:39 am
If it's for next weekend I can do any time since I'm off. I'm two hours behind you and Emp, Chag.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Chag4 on August 16, 2012, 12:02:37 pm
Oh, cool.
Yeah I'm on for any time next weekend too!
Just wish Pwncho, Akasha and Razzly could join in.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Emp_Dragon on August 16, 2012, 12:06:37 pm
Yeah, it would be awsome if we are more than three or four.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Pwncho on August 16, 2012, 01:33:15 pm
next weekend... hmmm, well it looks like I am working from 16:00 until 23:00 PST on saturday, but sunday is rather clear. I would love to have this work out.

Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Chag4 on August 17, 2012, 02:33:26 am
But what timezones are you guys in?
Need to know if GMT morning or evening is best and what time.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Oddball on August 17, 2012, 04:07:32 am

Title: Re: Skype Meetup!

This may be a really dumb question that I could probably google but, what's the diff between utc and gmt?

Nothing really.

<.< though in networking/computing it's always utc not gmt
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: ducky_worshiper on August 17, 2012, 11:20:59 pm
Ok so I suppose since technically it's daylight savings time that I'm only GMT/UTC/whatever -6 rather than -7.  Damn confusing time zones -_-
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Chag4 on August 18, 2012, 02:06:09 am
So, sunday 26th at GMT/UTC 1800 ??
Unless nobody says they can't or it's in the middle of the middle of the night for someone.

Still have no idea what timezone Pwncho is in.

And we can always move the time a few hours if it works but people think it's either early or late.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Pwncho on August 18, 2012, 02:29:42 am
I'm sitting pretty on the west coast at -8gmt, so as far as i can tell that would make it 10am on sunday for me... please correct me if i got that wrong.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: Chag4 on August 18, 2012, 09:47:13 am
Or 11am if you didn't add daylight savings yet.
Title: Re: Skype Meetup!
Post by: akashayi on August 18, 2012, 10:43:41 am
You're right with me on pdt Pwncho :)

so, 11am. I'll try to make the 26th.

(If anyone is around tomorrow about that time, I'll definitely be available too)
