Hey there Ania,

Watchin' you talk to yourself doesn't make you flippin' crazy or anything, at least not by local standards. Now and then some of us get together in Blunderchat, or "blat", as we call it. It is most definitely one of the more under-used features. You can make a post (I think if you look back far enough, you'll find one called "Meet me in Blat???" or something like that), and request or propose a time to meet up in blat. I'll wager you'll have folks linin' up to blat with you. When I've been on there, I mostly have to watch/listen, 'cuz I'm slower than a turtle when it comes to typing. By the time I answer a question, the conversation has moved on considerably. Interestingly, a couple of years ago Dave had reworked the site, and said that he was going to remove the chat feature since it wasn't being used. This, of course, created quite an uproar....."don't mess with my blat"....."oh please don't great wizard!" and stuff like that. You are something like 5 hours ahead over there, but if you make a time, or post something like, "what time is good for everybody?", I'm sure you'll find someone to blat with. Lord knows there's plenty to blat about these days........ :idea: :D

me too, although the mental arithmetic of working out time differences does my head in, have always been an arts/humanist kind of girl and steered away from anything remotely numerical.

on the plus side for me, am at home every evening as have 2 little monkeys asleep that i can't leave!!

when will you lot be ready for blatblatblat??

Wow! I've always wanted a monkey.

I think we can probably figure it out. I am on Pacific time. It's 11:30 pm here, and the series of tubes says it's 7:30 am there. I'm drinking a cocktail, and you're probably eating breakfast...

I've added back in the hook for Blat... So if you are on the forums and someone is in Blat - you should get a popup notifying you of that fact, unless you have a popup blocker installed. Might drive more folks in there when occupied!

No kidding. A Bloody Mary is way more appropriate for breakfast.
