Just a reminder: (thanks to Steven Pemberton for the following)

This weekend Europe switches to daylight savings, and next weekend the USA 
switches.

So this means that on monday - for one week only - teleconference calls will be
one hour later for Europeans, and the week after, for the duration of
daylight savings time in the US (until 26th October), calls will be one hour
earlier in Japan.

Just for interest - this weekend, daylight savings *ends* in Australia, which 
means that calls will be one hour *earlier* next week, and then *two* hours
earlier (Right?)

(Interesting factoid: West and Central Europe switch to DST at the same
instant, regardless of time zone, whereas the USA changes per time zone).
