In winter, that's 8pm on the evening. For anyone having young kids like
me, this is a no-go time, first because I don't want to let my wife take
care of everything, plus I do want to spend valuable time with my kids
every evening, and then the choice is easy to make.

So basically, I can't connect to IRC before 9pm local time (currently,
that's 20:00UTC).

I don't mind late on the evening, like 10pm or 11pm (this would be
21:00UTC or 22:00UTC in winter in Europe), or even later.

Ok. Then evening time is fine.
