Default GIMPS forum IRC party...

If you all can come up with a good time to meet maybe we can do it... I realize that it might be hard to come up with a time that is perfect for everybody, but I bet we can come close...

Phew, I thought I might have been the only one who didn't know what an IRC was. I don't feel quite so stupid now. So what is it?

I'm usually on UnderNet from 9PM to 11PM or a little after (Central Time), pretty much every day.

Load at work is starting to drive that "on" time back towards 10ish, though, a lot of nights....

Well, we have maybe 10 people interested... What would be a reasonable time that covers most time zones?

Was anyone from Europe or Asia planning on participating? That is where the time snafu would occur...

If the food's anything like it was at the school I went to, you'll probably be healthier at the IRC :D .

Okay, since nobody from Europe or Asia chimed in, lets try for 0500 UTC on Sunday... That should be midnight (Saturday) for the east coast and 9PM (Saturday) for the west coast...

Sounds good?

I'll post the IRC channel info shortly...
