OK, so Saturday or Sunday Morning people? Or is 7AM GMT too early for some of you US guys?

Let's get this defined well ahead of time so there's no confusion.

I'm at GMT -6, so yeah, 7am would start us at 1am and that wouldn't work out so well for me.

The other way could work though, our noon(ish) your evening, or our morning, your afternoon. Saturday morning is normally good, what would you say to that?

Well, I can basically arrange to be online anytime from 7am to 8pm GMT on Saturday without too much of a problem (I have to arrange with my wife so she looks after the kids if its at a time when the boys are awake, but she's very nice about that)

Make a more concrete time and server, and I can prolly show up as well, if you all need a target.

Well, let's at least try to do something on Saturday, say 4pm GMT which will be about 10am my time, which would be optimal, but if you need later that's possible, just let me know.

Shingen, would love to shoot atcha, or conduct further operations related to our former RP, have you updated that yet? I haven't looked lately but I remember you getting ready to do an update.

Ugh, well Qwest botched up my dsl account, looks like I'm gonna have to wait another week for them to "process" my request. On the upside, I'm all moved in, woohoo, expect to jump into the action asap. Thanks for the patience guys.

PS- Qwest sux!!!

Glad to hear that, Medivh. Look forward to flying alongside you.

Well, we're generally putting the boys to bed around 6-6.30pm, which is 4-4.30pm GMT, and putting the boys to bed is really a job for two, if you know what I mean so it would need to be an hour later, or I could always join a little late. I was hoping to go over some multiplayer 'set plays' for the fleet, if you will, to get you all ready and sharp for likely match situations. That sort of thing is usually classified, so as not to give away our best tricks.

We could always make it a more conventional exercise, getting to know each other, practising general combat and keep it open to others, and I could send you guys the tricks in a document by secure transmission.

In any event, we're going to need an active Teamspeak server on Saturday at least.

I'd fix that time now for this Saturday so people can say yay or nay in this thread.

5 pm GMT this Saturday, that is the 17th.

WE'll probably go on for an hour, hour and a ahlf, maybe two, depending on how well things go.

I'll be on server 2 in about 10 minutes. If I don't meet anyone in there by 5.30 GMT, I'll check the other servers and this thread.

Well, I had a nice little chat with Shingen's latest minion, but no ISS members. What's going wrong, here?

Everybody post your ideal time on a Saturday to meet up.

I have in mind to alternate fleet meetings between two times of day, one Saturday at time 1, the next at time 2.

Last week's time was OK for Damier, so I'd like next week to be at 7am GMT, unless Damier posts and says that is no longer a good time for him.

Well, I logged in yesterday about 11am (gmt-6) and didn't see anyone, so we'll have to try again some other time. Did we miss each other Ben?

Jeezuz, finally, Im fully functional again. Apparently, my install CD was not letting my computer communicate with my modem, according to qwest. Oh well, I'll get back up to speed, looking forward to getting it on again.

Excellent! You busy on weeknights? It'll be easier since we're both in US timezones to coordinate. Drop me some availability and we can go from there.

If you guys want to set up some sort of weekly or nightly MP sessions, then I'm pretty much good for any night after 7PM (central), and any weekend during mornings, afternoons or evenings.

We could always use a free TS server or I could set mine up, you if want to retain interfleet comms.

As long as the public UC servers are up, we might as well be using them for something.

OK, Zane, next time hang around a little longer. I generally hang around for at least half an hour before looking elsewhere.

I was on from about 7.15 (gmt+2)

Gotcha, I logged after about 20 minutes with nobody around. Overlap must be a difference between our watches, but in any event we'll call it at a half hour next time. What server should I login to?

I always start on server 2.

Shin, that Teamspeak offer sounds good. Did you get my PM?

I was wanting to get in at least one iss fleet training session in before the next fleet match, to get us all aquainted and run through some practice scenarios.

OK, Nick, PM us all your teamspeak server details (server name, IP and password) and we'll meet up on Server 2 at 7am GMT tomorrow (that's Saturday 23rd)(as I said earlier in this thread)

I had a document I wanted to send all those taking part in multiplayer, but I haven't finished it yet- maybe we can try some things out without it, and have it for reference later.

See you out there,

OK, server 2 seems to be down, I'll be on server 3.

No-one around. Hmm this is getting annoying. I'll wait qaround on server 3 for another half hour then call it quits.

Next fleet match is tomorrow evening 1900 GMT. Let's see if we can put a team together for that.
