Fade, yes I was on spring break. Spent the week in the Bahamas and it was great. Sorry to hear you spent yours writing a dissertation, but I hope it turned out ok?


I don't think that should be a problem for me, but just near in mind my 2am to 6am is different to yours!

I try to use the PM help overnight anyway, though, so hopefully should be able to make picks.

PS V jealous about Bahamas! And you guys are students, right? How the hell can you afford that?! ;) Over here, students end up with about £20k+ debt. And that's without holidays in the Bahamas... :-D

Honestly, I hate suspending the clock. There's always problems with time zones and I'd rather keep it simple. If we did 6 hours plus a suspended clock for 6 hours, it's essentially the same thing as an 8 hour clock as it guarantees 3 picks in a day. I'd prefer to do just a straight 6 or 8 hour clock.

I'm a graduate student working on a PhD, and work during the day as well. I can't afford, nor do I have the time, to do something like that. !+) Luckily I'll emerge with no student loan debt at all, but I definitely can sympathize with those who do.

Quoted for irony. ;-7


But with that, we're moving to a straight 6 hour clock. For those worried about overnight hours, make sure that you PM someone before you go to bed if you're pick is near - and we'll have no problems.

I have to wake daily at 5 a.m. during weekdays, so I'm generally not around past 11 p.m. So for those wanting to send picks overnight, maybe someone here who is a night-owl can make their volunteer and make their presence known. ;-D

I'm the obvious one (particularly during the week) to send overnight picks too, I would think! I'll usually be around from 7am UK time (2am EST, I think?). At weekends I might be a bit later up, and sometimes not so much around computer.

This weekend should be around enough though...

It has been 12 hours so you can pick now RBV assuming you are around.

What's the etiquette here? Oopah's clock should have started after RBV's pick, right? !+)

Edit: I'm going.
