I copy/pasted this from the MoM calendar. I'm not sure, but does the calendar convert the time when you put a date into it?
That is.....
Is this my time? Or is it a time Cheryl typed in?

Wouldn't want to miss a planned chat if I can help it.

Yes, it does convert the time. However it looks like it may not have accounted for the fact that the US hasn't hit daylight savings yet (and won't until early Sunday), but Europe and Austrialia has. Right now you should be an extra hour ahead, so those times for you should be 9pm to 3am. But then since it's just the US that hasn't switched, maybe we should start the whole thing an hour earlier anyhow...

Also, for the regular-general MoM chat we have chosen a wide time slot so you should be safe anyway

That sounds interesting, for me the 12noon pacific time should coverall the time for me, no mater what the time change is. A little early for some chats, and a little later on others, same time for me.
