Re: [council] call timing / daylight saving time
The logic of various criterias as explained by Philip makes
that the call for 4 April is at 13:00 UTC, Paris 15:00.
The week starting today 31 March and ending 6 April 2002 is the most
difficult week from local time perspective - Europe moved today
to DST+1, while USA remains with DST+0.until 6 April - in other
words while we are used to 6 hours difference between New York
and all continental Western and Central Europe: Paris, Amsterdam,
Berlin, Rome, Madrid, Stockholm, Warsaw, Oslo, Copenhaguen, ...,
this is the only week in a year when it is 7 hours.
The Names Council records show that we never missed to have a call
during the most difficult-local-time-week (end March/beginning April)
... tradition respected this year.
Bottom line: the colleagues living in the US East Coast will
have the 4 April call at 8:00 morning (not 9:00).
(Harold Feld, Greg Ruth, Roger Cochetti, Marilyn Cade, Ken Stubbs,
J. Scott Evans, Richard Tindal ... sorry if I missed someone).
Have a nice Sunday,
