Hello Cecilia (and other interested parties in Europe),
I am sitting on GMT -10 hours. Most of the Americans are at -15 to -18
relative to me, or 5-8 hours behind GMT (I think?). Someone correct me if
I am wrong, but I think that it unfortunately means that Europeans are
effectively excluded by virtue of the regular sessions taking place in the
early hours of Saturday Morning, which is a pity. Unless you are an
insomniac or a Computer Science Student, that is. Being both, I myself am
more likely to be asleep at 4 in the afternoon than 2 in the morning with
exams coming up fast, these things happen.
The original times were decided by the people who organised the channel 18
or so months ago. This is not to say that the time is immutable or that
people may not use the channel at other times, far from it. :)
Please feel free to organise other Europeans to meet at a more convenient
time and sort out a regular "Euro-#rml" session - that way it will be
available to more people. I will certainly make it when I can.
Best Regards, Andrew

heavily on the floor, or rather on a body which had been lying there
undisturbed for around six months and which reacted to being sat on
by exploding with great violence."
