I apologize for not thinking of this in time to solicit advice from everyone, but FOX happens. Anyway, Ebo & Mal-licious originally set the start time for Virtual Shindigs based on GMT. However, the vast majority of folk who join the VSs go on Daylight Savings Time for the warmer half o' the year, so I think the VS should, too. I did discuss this with everyone in the Firefly room this afternoon (Alan, who lives in Britain), & it makes sense to him that we redefine the start time as 11am California time. In the winter, California is on GMT-8, but it (& most of the USA) goes on Daylight Savings Time the first weekend in April & reverts to Standard Time the last weekend in October (in both cases, before the VS). To summarize, we're doing this so that the Virtual Shidigs will continue to start @the customary time, for most folks. Sorry Arizona.

The old thread http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=2&t=8767 was gettin' kinda long, anyway.

Sundays Only because we haven't watched an ep on Tuesday yet this year, & as many people will drop in on other days of the week. Which reminds me:

The Firefly room on AIM is open any ol' time. Logon & invite yourself; like as not you'll run into Alan or Lochravin or me. Hope to see you there.

11:00 PST summer (GMT-7) = 18:00 GMT = 19:00 UK summer (GMT+1) = 20:00 CAT (GMT+2)

The room is: Firefly

On 2005-04-03 three and a half of us watched Objects in space, 5 watched Out of gas, and YT and me were the last fans standing - watching Our Mrs. Reynolds. The room maxed at 14 fans at one time.

Yah, & it was awesome. There must have been @least a couple of dozen different fans in there, over the course of the VS, five of whom I hadn't seen there before.

Keep in mind that it would be sillier if I didn't ask but, do you get to any of those, Jack?

Since I'm still BDB challenged, can you tell me what room they use, & what client?

On Sunday, 2005 April 17, we maxed @nine in the room. Three of us watched Ariel, then four watched Jaynestown (yup, again, I wasn't paying attention to the chart), and Bushwhacked.

So far, looks like we may have five next Friday, for the special edition Serenity VS: http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=2&t=9423

Be Safe next Sunday.

Anyone still save the VSs? I'm gonna start a log of eps watched.

On Sunday, 2005 May 15, we maxed @a baker's dozen in the room. We continued the whole series in Fff.n order; six of us watched (two in their minds' eye) Heart o' Gold, then three stayed for Objects In Space.

This series will conclude with Trash & the Message, next Sunday. Hope to see you then.

On Sunday, 2005 May 22, I was havin' such a good time, I forgot to keep count. Seemed like the usual crowd so, perhaps sixteen folks over the course of the afternoon(NA)/evening(Europe&Africa)/wee smalls(Australia&Korea), with a max population round nine or ten. We wrapped up the whole series in Fff.n order; maybe half a dozen watching Trash, then three or four stayed for How It Was/the Making of Firefly, the Message, & 10th Crew Member.

I'll be outa town next weekend, which is a long holiday weekend in the USA. Hope to see y'all in a coupla weeks. Jack, I trust you'll post details of the May 29 Virtual Shindig?

I have been remiss. I didn't post about last weekend's VS.

Thinking back, on Sunday, 2005 June 5, seemed like about ten folks dropped by over the first three hours, of which about four watched Shindig and Out of Gas, with commentaries. I had to leave but, rumour has it, no more eps were watched that day.

Catching up to date, on Sunday, 2005 June 12, well over a dozen folks dropped in, & we maxed @10 in the room (though two of those were Eboneezer). Five of us watched War Stories with commentary. Again I had to leave but, after more than three hours, it didn't seem like anyone was up for another ep today.

Is anyone else keeping a log of these VSs?

On Sunday, 2005 June 26, about a dozen folks dropped in, including a couple that were new to me. Four or five of us watched the pilot, and three stayed for Train Job.

I'm going riding next Sunday (holiday weekend in Canada & the USA). Jack, I trust you'll keep us posted.

I'll be away for the next three weekends, riding on the first & third Sundays, & up @a mountain retreat watching the Perseids from the 11th through the 14th. Jack, I trust you'll keep us posted.
