Since Europe, the Americas and Australia/NewZealand are spaced reasonably evenly
around the globe, there is no time that suits everyone. The best thing that we
can do is take it in turns who has to wake up early or stay up late (or skip the
meeting). I suspect that I am in a small minority of people who are currently
in Australia (though there have been several D-W people in the past who were in
this timezone, so maybe there are some now I'm not aware of), so it works best
if we mostly choose a time that suits the EU and the USA. Just not every time...

Yep. You got it. My daughter just loves pushing buttons, any buttons. She's
already called OOO (the Au version of 911) twice on the phone. I guess the
operators must be used to that.

There's no time that will suit everyone, and I don't want to change things
around now on my account, especially since I have certainly not been putting the
effort into DW stuff recently that many others have. I think we should go with
the times suggested, see which gets the most votes, and go with that. I was
just mentioning it as something to keep in mind for the future.
