[J3] settle meeting times

I always get confused with these time zones unless they’re specified as offsets from UTC (the international standard for time).


So, EDT is apparently UTC-4:00, so EDT 16:00-19:00 would be UTC 20:00-23:00.


BST is UTC+1:00, so that’s BST 21:00-24:00 (for those in the UK) i.e. 9pm to midnight.

Japan is UTC+9:00, so (mod 24h) that’s 05:00-08:00 (for those in Japan) i.e. 5am to 8am.


Ouch. Did I get the timezone right? Did I do my sums correctly?


I guess I can handle it, especially if it lets John Reid, or anyone else from the UK who wishes to, to participate.
