I am happy with the ET designation (and find it more useful than utc 
which i always have to translate).

i can not complete the poll though since the w3c site will not let me 
login with a login that allows me to fill out the poll.  I have reported 
it but have no response to the problem.
Perhaps others have the same problem?
(I was able to fill in the previous poll so it is a new problem).

Deborah
ps. I can make Fridays at 11am but have conflicts with the other 2 times.
