FYI, I just added a Chat event to the calendar... 9pm ET on Wednesday, thought it might be fun to gather in the chat room if anyone's inclined... see you there, perhaps!

I'm absolutely hopeless at figuring out time differences. What would 9pm Wednesday Tonmo time be my time in Sydney? Probably Thursday morning? Working stuff like that out makes me dizzy.

Labour Day? That's a public holiday for you guys, right? Enjoy! :cheers:
Ponders.... Why is "labour" day a holiday? Shouldn't it be "lazing about" day? :lol: I'm having my own small L labour day, in the office... as usual.

Oops, I thought the chat was today at 9 p.m. ET. Anyway, just curious: How come when I entered the Chat Room to see if anyone was there, it immediately told me my chat session had expired? Doesn't it wuv me? :cry:

sorry about the confusion!

Well, I just tried it out, and it worked fine... in fact, because all chat messages stay online for 1 hour after you post them in the room (can never stress that enough), I was able to see that you successfully entered the room around the top of the hour. So it seems you made it in OK as well!

See you there Wednesday at 9pm Eastern! :wink:

I still don't understand how this works. I just tried to enter the chatroom as a test, and when I did I got the same "Sorry. your chat session has expired" message. There was nowhere for me to leave a message, and now the announcement on the forum menu says I'm chatting, when I obviously ain't. :?

So if it tells you your chat session has expired unless someone else is chatting, how does the first person to sign on get into the chatroom? And how can s/he leave a message there other than his/her "cyber-footprint"?

This is more confusing than Schrödinger's Cat! Think I'm goin' for a drive on the Möbius Strip and drowning my sorrows in a Klein Bottle....

:bonk:

here's an idea................

I havn't managed to reach nancy yet to discuss this but......

9pm tony's time is 2AM here for me which is 8pm for nancy

So i am going to make sure that I am about online and in the chat room for 10pm my time, 5pm for Tony and 4pm for nancy..i wanted to join in the real chat but 2AM is way to drunk..... i mean er... late for me (i'm off work tomorrow :) )

so anyway, if you sign on check the chat room and I'll try to get Nancy to get in too!

Cheers
C

[sigh] Of course some of us, after all that hooha about time differences, actually did manage to show up an hour late and miss the festivities.

:oops:

Ummm... it was 11am in Sydney Krin... I don't think Melbourne's that far away. Then again, Australia's a big place. :biggrin2: Or are you O/S at the moment?
I managed to pop in for about 15 minutes, but it was a fun 15 minutes. I'd definitely be in favour of a couple of regular weekly chat slots. Thanks for teeing up yesterday's session Tony. :notworth:
