I like this, I have been wanting to attend a meeting but the time is always
bad for me. This works for me :)

awesome! thanks richard! now sander can stop complaining about
our online meetings...finally! ;) but what WILL we do with all
that money... (ok, that was a gdc inside joke)

yeah, let's give this a try and see how well we do with this
new style of forums/mailing lists/fewer online meetings --
we've got so many things going on it's worth doing an
experiment to help with communication!

>> sound good??

these are mediocre times and people are
