Actually you are 7 hours behind. It's an important distinction when talking about a particular date.
It is an important distinction, but you've got it the wrong way. If you count by the direction indicated by a 7-hour-behind difference, you cross the international date line and have to jump a day forward. He is 17 hours ahead.

I am available on Friday starting about 6 PM Eastern time, which is 3 PM Pacific. I may be a bit tired, however. I am available all day Saturday with plenty of time to sleep in to ensure I am wide awake.

Drat-blast-it! Foiled again by the date!

Why can't people just schedule according to a standardized time like UTC?
Maybe we should talk in ETA since I obviously have no clue what day it is. For me I think it's Thursday now, 11:11 PM or 2311 on the 26th of June 2008. I am going to try and sleep tonight, but I can be free for much of the day tomorrow. Say from 1500 to 1900 my time, that's 0500 to 0900 PST (They're GMT-7, I'm GMT+3) - Hmm, might not be convenient for some of you.

I'm going out to dinner tomorrow night for my birthday. When I come back we can play too, say from 2200 my time (1200 noon PST) until late the next evening. So at any time from noon on Friday PST to early morning on Saturday PST, as long as I'm not left hanging after not sleeping a lot. I wanna slaughter some minions!
Maybe the GM will give me nice birthday presents, like a skull that spits fireballs and casts Gaze of Fear, a wand of Disintegrate, or a cool +9 orb of Kill Everything?

If you want that in numbers, my availability times are:
12:00 PM on 27th - 07:00 AM on the 28th PST, or
1900 27/6 - 1400 28/6 GMT
Or starting from 23 hours from the time of this posting as an ETA.

The GM will give you nice presents, oh yes indeed. *Not-Innocent GM Grin*

I woke up this morning and, well, 'left a trail' to the toilet.

I think I will still be able to GM tomorrow, but you may need to prompt your GM.

Umm...How about I just post if I manage to get my brains in order enough to get the server up?

I did spend most of today huddled under a blanket...

Saturday? I guess I have to drop out of this game then, because I will be either sleeping or at work. Sorry.

Not that it looks like I could attend anyway, but I also have been in bed sick.

Must be something really vicious going around, because I've been feeling like crap all weekend too!
