So that'll be 9pm in the UK, and 10pm for most of the rest of Europe if anybody needs to know (if I've worked that out correctly...)

By the way, central time is UTC-05:00, not UTC -06:00...

Probably just make a list of people that are interested and TG them; posting it publicly is a great way to get Zoom bombed.

And start the drinking session with the same drink.

I'll probably do it audio only, because I have no idea what will be visible through my camera. Will that be okay?

I always assume everyone takes a more extreme version of their views on here, and honestly the net is the place you can explore your ideas by taking said positions.
