Yup, agreed.

My suggestion (just discussed with Kevin IRL): 7-hour sessions are
much too long - people will get bored, and won't want to miss an
entire night out (for example). If we drop it to 3- (or even 2-) hour
sessions then it means we need more people to cover, but nobody really
misses out.

 unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."  -- James D. Nicoll
