Re: Weekly phone call times

Hello Holger,

I certainly understand. I don't sleep much and I'm an early bird. I have 
no problem doing calls at 6am but can't fathom having calls at 1 or 2am. 
Anticipating that this couldn't possibly be sustainable for you I actually 
meant to look for another time slot. Thank for you doing so.

I'm very open to your proposal which, although may be somewhat 
inconvenient for our European members, seems overall far more reasonable.

I see Simon already agreed to it. What about you Axel?

Subject:        Weekly phone call times

I have to confess the current time of our weekly meetings is killing me. 
Getting up between 1 am and 2 am wouldn't be too bad, but some of you 
may know how hard it is to get sleep either before or after such a time 
slot. Basically my next working day happens in zombie mode.

Looking at the previous list of attendees we have very few people from 
Europe showing up. Getting those (1-2) participants accept a time slot 
shortly after dinner time would open up the following possibility:

- US West Coast: 11 am
- US East Coast: 2 pm
- Central Europe: 8 pm
- Queensland: 5 am

which much much better aligns with my bio clock. Even 4 am would be much 
better than 1 am for me. I believe this time slot would also work better 
for US West Coast people than 7 am.

May I carefully check whether there is any theoretical chance of such a 
change, at least alternating every other week? Apologies to my friends 
in Europe and the planning overhead! I would totally withdraw my 
proposal if we had more people from Europe attending.
