The death of PMs rudely interrupted a conversation I was having with BD concerning playing on the weekend. To explain, since we are so far away, we tend not to see each other on the servers (I tend to play in the evenings here on the east coast of the US which is way too late in Europe). Well, then I guess I'll communicate this way - So BD, when do you play on the weekend? If I got on at say 2PM my time, that would be like 8PM there right? Do you play later than that? This thread applies to a lot of the rest of you as well - I miss playing with some of you, so we should figure out when we can get together. See you on the servers! :cheers:

Sorry my friend, I don't know what occurs with PM but it's really annoying. This thread is a good idea. As I said to you, I don't see you or Queeg (and many other US mates) on servers and it's a real pity. The time shift between Europe and US is surely the reason.

Unfortunatly, I had to work in weekend since several weeks. I hate that but I can't do differently. And I will surely have to work too for the next 2 weekends :( . So I won't be able to join the game in the afternoon (French afternoon)

So I will play in French evening, from 9PM until...I see butterfly on my screen! So it should sticks with your availability. I will confirm it here in front if ever I have a prevention.

[Off topic explanation]About "Crenel", it's a French translation of the word "Créneaux". Now I realize it wasn't a good idea to use it since you didn't understood it (Each time I use translator, I have this kind of problem). As many other words, it has several meaning. The main one is about the form you see on the top of the walls of medieval castles (a bump, a hole, a bump etc...) We also use it as "availability" because you can always put something in a hole (got it?) [/Off topic explanation]

Hey, work is good, don't feel too bad. Much better than no work at all!

That still gives me a good idea of when to catch you. I will try to play about 3PM my time when I can and hope to find you. When you work weekends do you still play ~9PM? If so, I'll hopefully see you this coming weekend! :thumbsup: Butterfly?? :Puzzled: Anyone else up for the same time?

Hey folks, to avoid confusions, convert your time into GMT that way folks know what time you're talking about and not have to guess what time zone you are in. If you're not sure what the gmt time or conversion is try this site: http://worldtimeserver.com/ so for preacher (and myself at EST (GMT-5)) 2pm would be 7pm GMT or more correctly 19:00 GMT this will then allow the rest of you across the globe to then figure out (with relative ease) what that time would be for yourself. (we must remember we now span many many timezones now (from westcoast usa through europe & asia to australia) and maybe further..

@Dragon: Thanks for the hint!

@Preacher: Well I will probably join servers near 21:00 GMT. Hope to see you there! Yes, I love butterflys. they're really nice, aren't they? :lol: When I play since a very long time puppyeyes:, they come back to say hello and recall me that it's bed time! :yawn:(usually, I listen to them) I noticed that if I drink to much, they come much earlier, even if I'm not playing... ;)
