Good idea, Al.  I was thinking of suggesting a second time for our periodic
SCREENchats that would both (1) facilitate European participation and (2)
provide a *daytime* meeting for North Americans (so that folks who have
their Internet connection at work/school could join in).
If Al doesn't mind, I'd suggest he take charge of trying to find such a
time.  (Is that okay, Al?)  And folks should send their preferences to him:

One thought that occurred to me was a midday North American chat, which
would be early evening for Europeans.  For example:
One Day
10:00 a.m., Los Angeles
noon, Tuscaloosa, Alabama (and, say, Chicago)
1:00 p.m., New York
2:00 p.m., Buenos Aires
6:00 p.m., London and, I believe, GMT
7:00 p.m., Paris, Stockholm
8:00 p.m., Cairo
The Next Day
1:00 a.m., Beijing
2:00 a.m., Tokyo
3:00 a.m., Wollongong, Sydney
(Note:  These times do not take into consideration the presence/absence of
daylight savings time.)
A reminder:  We'll be chatting today about Australian film.  See below for
chat times.
