FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN CHAT
- BlankI have been getting questions re time zones. To know what time zone you are in compared with my time zone of GMT = 10hrs go to SETTING on your computer click on control panel then click date time. click time zone and look up your zone. ie
PACIFIC TIME US is -8GMT meaing 18hrs behind us.So if I set a chat for 7pm Brisbane time it is 1am in the morning.
If I set a chat for 3pm in the afternoon here it will be 9pm at nght.
NY time is GMT-4 meaning 14hrs behind so a 7pm chat would be 5am and a 3pm chat would be 1am
So I will have a chat at 3pm BRISBANE TIME on My Australian List on this saturday for about 30mins
and for the sake of you overseas people I will do 8.30am on SAT MORNING for my ENGLISH LIST for about 30mins and see how we go.
That means for all you overseas people it should be early Friday evening/afternoon for the english list. Australians well depends whether you are in Sydney, ie 9.30 or 4pm or in Perth 5.30am or 12
See how we go. Once again for about 30 minutes as I have done few of these this week and my fingers are sore keeping up with the chat :-)
To get into chat click on your egroups/yahoo home page
Hope this works.

Forgive me making a suggestion. Have no idea what 'Brisbane Time' is. Sure that many of your overseas contacts in UK, rest of Europe. US would like to take part in your programme. Most people know what GMT is, either they are plus or minus, so if you just say time of your talk programme GMT hope they get it. Already missed one due to not understanding what time it was!
This is not criticism, only trying to help
