I'm still in, the time is really early, but I've got to ask why the time was changed from previous OMs? Those times seemed to work pretty well for most of us. Is it more optimal for some? My strategy changes to having to play silently.

Clint, the timing change was to accommodate folk based out east (Australia, Japan). It was set to be an evening session for those people, middle of the day in EMEA, and that has the knock-on impact on USA/Canada. And probably you would be as far West as one can get get, unless we have Forum members based in Hawaii.

My thinking would be for the following OM to be back to the previous timing.

I will undoubtedly be in the audience unless something arises which I can not say no to. :)

No worries, DP! I'll play for anybody at any time of the day that is willing to listen (or at least tolerate it). :)

Good to hear, Richard. Of course once in the audience, I think you should sing us a song...any song...doesn't have to be as challenging as a classic like Romeo & Juliet (though you delivered a wonderful rendition of that)

No worries, DP! I'll play for anybody at any time of the day that is willing to listen (or at least tolerate it). :)

Thanks, Clint, your community spirit is inspirational. Always a treat to listen to you perform.

No worries, Rod, that's understood. And if you only know last minute, even on the day, that'll be fine ... we'd make a plan.

David, can you take me off the audience list please?
Travel restrictions lifting means I'll probably be sitting on the ferry to Dublin on the 14th

I presume it will be recorded as usual and posted on the forum, so I can enjoy upon my return?  :)

Will do Brian.

It will be recorded, provided somebody (I think that would be Adrian) remembers to press the record button.

Hello friends,

Schedule is finally emptying and I can make the commitment. Please put me down for one song (will not go over 5 minutes in total).

Thank you for organising!

Hi David. Please add me to the audience list for August 14th. I’ll be on holiday on the Isle of Arran and don’t know how good the internet connection will be in our accommodation so I can’t guarantee being present, but I’ll do my best to be there and cheer you all on!

Hi David,

Can you take me off the list of the performers for August 14th? After just returning from a camping trip, I realized that, with the August 14th date being just after my next big scheduled camping trip, I don't think I'll have the energy to stay up into the night (I'm 9 hours earlier than GMT+1) and be ready.

I will definitely sign up for an Open Mic which is at a better time for me, sometime in the fall or winter, though!

Thanks,
 Bob

Thanks, Bob. Look forward to you joining next time round

That's a pity, Anna ... not your camping but that you won\t be able to join  ;) Hopefully the stars will align at the next opportunity. Enjoy the camping, we'll miss you.

Excellent Jason.

I think let's see how it goes over the next couple of weeks and on the day. And if we have the time and people keen for more we can do encores on the day.

I’m having a hard time converting time zones. Does anybody happen to know what time this is in eastern daylight time? (I think that’s GMT -4)

Could I get the link to watch the show live as part of the audience - in case I happen to be up early that day?

Tosh, I'm in EDT too. I think 11h00 UTC+1 is 6:00 am EDT. Don't trust me on that though, wait for someone else to confirm it :)

I'll add you Mari.

Tosh, Mari is 100% correct.

I've learned that GMT and UTC are the same. Not going to do the research to figure out why the world needs to terms for the same thing.

And I think in future it would be a good idea to state the event time as UTC/GMT ie 10h00 for this one and then people can just add or subtract based on their own time zone stated as hours ahead or behind GMT/UTC.

This new OM is looking cool already!

Due to timing and family business, I fear I'll need to pass on this one. :(
If it works out, I might be able to add myself to the back of the list of performers. Ill keep you posted

GMT is current Greenwich Mean Time which basically means what time currently is in Greenwich which sits at 0 deg longitutde.

Because it's basically in the middle of the whole world from time zones perspective it also falls as Coordinated Universal Time.

The trick is UTC is not recognizing winter and summer time since it's Universal, hence in the summer it's UTC+1 and winter is pretty much equal to UTC :)

Time zones were created in 1883 and Daylight saving started in 1895 so I guess that's why +1 because it came later ;)

Keep on rockin' my friends
