I realise that we may have been through this before, but.....
I can get onto ECN at 0800 my time and djk will be replying to the odd post.
Where as Pauluk will not come on over here until 2300hrs, my time.
It's quite cool being down in this area of the world, because, just after Breakfast (0900) in the weekends, the guys from the General Area and all the other Forums hop on and have a go at the Discussions, during the whole day.
How is it for you guys?.
The biggest thing I have to worry about is keeping the toast crumbs away from the keyboard buttons!.
And yet another question, what's your favourite Breakfast?, I've heard that the traditional English B/Fast is a real beauty!.
Good Lord, I'm getting Hungry!!.

Best time difference calculator I've come across online is an Ozi one here .

I see that you're only 3 hours away from me Mike - plus a day of course!

I tend to vary my times, depending upon whether I'm working at home for the day or not.

When I'm home, I can take a break and log-on around midday/lunchtime and catch the East Coast guys posting over their breakfast, or leave it until a little later in the afternoon to catch the West Coast.

The problem with here to New Zealand is the reversed seasons for daylight savings: NZ is 13 hours ahead of Britain during the northern winter, only 11 hours during our summer.

Yeah that's a darn good point Paul, now that we have started the Chats area, it just makes you wonder who is around, while you are on there.
But I must say that Bill Addiss has been a real help in getting the thing working and making it comfortable for all concerned.

I had some odd hours over the last while so I wouldn't use my posting time as a good indication of Irish time zone

DJK,
At least it's easy for us crossing the Irish Sea, as we're all in the same time zone.
