    GMT is 4 hours ahead of us here which puts that at 4 pm my time on Thursday. I'm going to have to miss this one too at that time but that's OK. I'll catch another one some other time. :)

    Oh, that was just a suggestion. We can pick any other time, I don't mind! A couple of hours earlier or later?

    Damn. That leaves me out too. :(

    I have no idea of the time zones though...

    Maybe you should bring MUDDing back! I haven't played a really good MUDD in... geeze... maybe ten years or more? Then you only have to type and not talk. Of course that wouldn'rtwork for me at night either, because MY wife is such a light sleeper that she gets annoyed by my key punching and mouse-clicking. :p

    he has a point :p

    Edit: Mind you, this place already IS dead. Nothing like it used to be. Back when I first joined there were hundreds of posts per day. A lot in spam I'll admit, but still the rest of the forum was super active and that's the reason I joined in the first place. Times change I guess.

    Yeah, you're right about changes over time. I think this is a pretty busy place. I'm a low level fantasy enthusiast though. I need to work on this :D

    Times change but post people, post!
    Friday night (after 11 pm GMT), saturday morning (early - before 2:30 GMT) or sunday (after 6 pm GMT) would work for me this weekend (assuming thursday is a no-go) :)

    Honestly, I think we're never going to find a time when everybody can be online together. I say we add each other as Skype contacts and keep Skype online whenever you're available. Start a conversation with somebody and add other people into it as they show up. That might work just as well as anything else...?

    All kidding aside though, what if you did it through e-mail or something. It would be a slower game - over days or weeks rather than a few hours, but everyone could play without worrying about coordinating times. People used to play chess-by-mail after all back in the day.

    That's a very good suggestion.

    I'm often on skype, just not on a microphone, I'd be happy to have more of you on there. I got the wonderful Druid on there.
    I think my skype-name is "shrimpkins".

    I'll add you as soon as I get home, PerFolmer!

    I agree with S.J.'s idea. Turn out this weekend I can't use Skype at all, so I couldn't join. And our different time zones make the coordination of a meetup so chaotic, so why not make this a spontaneous thing?

    I still haven't checked to see who's added me. I'm almost afraid to in case I'm not well liked... :D
