OK! OK! I've come to a decision regarding the first episode.

For those of you that have Skype, please be at this time: (will figure that out later, and edit this post)

We're gonna have a bunch of people in a recorded call. It's gonna be like...a furry fiesta. We'll be discussing future episodes, and various happenings. And, thanks Mandy, for some more content ideas.

Schism: You'll have to take a rain check until around Monday evening (?). I need to get out of the actively creative side of FT for a while, and I have a decent bit of work that a couple people just reminded me about.

I can easily change it. What time can you make? We could go around 4, or late at night.

4 should be fine, depending on how long the show goes on. If anything, I might have to leave the call early.
At night, anything past 10 should be fine.

Last obligation (most) Fridays: 2 PM (expected completion). I'll drop you a message later... I might be able to make it after all.

I can't speak for Schism on this one, but since he lives in the GMT-5 timezone (US Eastern Standard), I imagine that's the timezone he was referring to.

To Schism (and everyone else, for that matter):  A bit of a tip for internet communications (including this project), never assume that people know what timezone you're in, or which timezone you're referring to, when specifying time.  Giving your GMT offset is the best bet (this server, in Florida, is GMT-5, or GMT-4 during DST), especially for non-US users, but if you don't know it, at least give the timezone name (US Eastern Standard/US Eastern Daylight) or abbreviation (EST, EDT, etc) to give people some frame of reference.

This is a lesson I've learned after many years of talking to a LOT of people online from all over the globe, and is especially important to non-US residents who might not have a clue what timezone specific US states are in.  It's also a problem for the all-numeric shortened date formats commonly used in the US.  Personally, I've remedied this by writing date and time in the most universal, unconfusable format possible (without making it really long).  For example, I'd write a date and time as:  Nov 2, 2009, 18:35 (GMT-5).  Date format that can't be misinterpreted, time in 24h format (some countries don't use am/pm, including some European countries), with a universally-recognized timezone (nearly everyone knows what GMT is and what their own offset is).

Well, to return what Natasha asked, the best I can tell you is that I'm on the east coast; so, I live in the same zone as New York, New York in the United States of America. 2PM local for me should be 11 AM local for the opposite (West) side of the States, if that gives you a feel for the gap you might have to deal with here.

Psst, Kuney is in Britain, which is why I spent so much of my post talking about internationally-recognized formats ;-)

Totally, totally me proving what an idiot I can be sometimes. [facepalm]

Continues:

Dates for me, Natasha, are day, then month, then year. That's more common to research papers, but I'm in the Natural Sciences anyway. 25 November 1990 is how I write my birthday.

As to my time zone in standard form: from Greenwich Median Time, I should be sans 5 hours - GMT -5

Second edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601 (?) Or so we're told..?

Short version:
(GMT -5)

Sorry if this has been addressed somewhere, but I raided the thread and couldn't find it D: What's the estimated end-time for the show? Chances are I might have to poof out of it early.

In addition to that, I have to take a rain check on the review for the moment. The script's written, but I have 4 coding projects for grades, a job to handle, and I need to prepare a presentation to last 10 minutes for a class I'm current failing.

Sorry.

It's ok if you do, I'm not sure when it will end. Just, make sure you do it quietly :D

Just over an hour to go I assume?
But how does the Skype call work? Do we just need you as a contact (which I do), or do we need to be in a room (and is there an invite)?

Hope those of you who could be there have fun. It should be fairly close.... Sorry, I have a mountain of work, and when that's done I've got a website to get going.

I'm very proud to say, that the first recording went great! Or at least, I think so.

I have to edit out some stuff, and add some effects. I'll send it to Natasha, who'll post it and all that. So, expect it to be up this weekend.
