A slight bit of craziness will happen with our telecon as as Daylight
Savings Time kicks in Nov. 1st in the USA while it kicked in on Oct.
25th in Europe.What is means is that *next* week and next week only,
for Europeans, the
call will be *one hour earlier*, while for Americans it will be at the
same time. This is because Zakim, the W3C Telecon bridge, is harnessed
not to UTC, but to Eastern Standard Time in Boston (and this can't be
changed easily!).

So, keeping call at 11:00PM EST, for Europeans tomorrow and tomorrow
only (Oct 29th call) the call is at the following times:

London:	Wed 15:00
Amsterdam/Geneva: Wed 16:00

While in places like USA, time is the same:

Boston: 11:00 AM
San Francisco: 8:00 AM
