I was just wondering... it seems like it should be around 8:30 or something in European time zones right about now (2:30 AM in eastern USA). There never seems to be much action on the forums at this time of morning (when I'm on the most). It just seems like there should be more posts going on during these hours than there really is. That was just on my mind so I figured I'd throw it out there :)

It's really late in the NA and really early in the UK.

So yeah, it's usually dead around here at this hour.

Yeah, I'm stalking on these forums for 8 hours a night 5 nights a week :) It gets lonely with so few early birds/night owls. I was just thinking more people wake up early, but I guess not.

In Europe it's always about 7-8 hours later than it is in the US. So when it's 20h / 8pm here it's just twelve o'clock in the day time in the US. And when it's 20h / 8pm in the US. We lay in bed sleeping since it's 4am in Europe :P
Of course those are just rough times since Europe has different timezones, too but it's a approximate time so you know why nobody's there when you're online :D

UK is on BST right now so we're 8hrs. ahead of US PST, 6 hrs. ahead of CST and 5hrs. ahead of EST.

When you posted this I was taking a shower. This is the reason why it's exceedingly difficult to get an online match with Norte Americanos planned!

Although i live in the UK due to my crazy working hours i am usually on this site at what could be classed peak hours for NA, i don't usually go to bed untill about 3-4am through the week which is about 9-10pm PST.

Stupid BST, why do we that again? And, no I'm not actually asking. GMT ftw!

I usually get to see the start of the NA NL evening activities before crashing, or I might catch the late shift if I'm on early. Huh!?

What's BST? Is that like DST (daylight savings time)?

British Summer Time and yes, it's like DST. I agree Machu, it should be abandoned and has little purpose especially as far north as I am where the effect is that it starts getting light out around 4am!

I would rather keep BST and not put the clocks back in the winter time, i'd rather have light for longer in the evening in the winter rather than it getting dark at about 4pm, as for it getting light to early in the summer time get some thicker curtains :)

This is good
