I think I am now ready to just say hang everything, the whole planet needs to ditch daylight savings time. :shock:

I *think* it's at 3 pm in Maryland. We're on daylight saving time (aka Summer Time). But prior EEBs were usually at 4 pm, except when we got out of sync with BST, and from what Heather says, BST will be on by Sunday.

'm confused again. But that's my usual state of mind, mostly.

I think heather might have been thrown by the poll date, which is set in May.according to www.timeanddate.com british summer time starts at 2 am on Sunday the 29th of march. Which means that UTC = GMT for the meeting on saturday, march 21st.

Ok, I give up :oops: I've read through this thread twice and I'm still none the wiser as to when this is supposed to start :? For the hard of thinking (i.e. me!), can someone please tell me what time should we be logging on in the UK?

Right. Click here and you should be able to see the time in your location.

Be signed in on Skype and have me as a contact. If the time rolls around and I have not added you to a meeting, send me a message via skype and I'll add you in (it'll be 6am local time for me so apologies in advance if I overlook you- it will not be personal)
