    Aww! Yeah, I think I know what happened. It's that darn dateline, and believe me, this is a concern to me. Even among navigation enthusiasts, it's an easy mistake to make when there's nothing mission-critical on the line. You may have noticed that I added a "convert time" link, but that's just a stopgap. Anyway, the early or "Atlantic" session is just over twelve hours from now at 1:00pm Eastern US time (1700 UT), and the later or "Pacific" session is just over eighteen hours from now. That later session will be at 7:00om Eastern or 2300 UT on Sunday, July 5 Greenwich date, which is Monday early morning in your corner of the world.

    I have had people attending my workshops from that part of the world, so I have become accustomed to the time difference. It's quite a global group: Czechia, Netherlands, England, Ireland Brazil, Antigua, Newfoundland, Bermuda, all across the continental US, Guam, New Zealand, Australia... Not all at once, of course! And I don't know who will regularly attend these Sunday "office hours" sessions, but I'm game to seed it and discover what grows. I have every intention of hosting these sessions through the end of the summer, and they will occur at the same time (I hope) so you can plan for them.
