Ruby Reports Roundtable on Freenode (2006.07.08)

Hello folks,

I’d just like to mention that for my google summer of code project,
Ruby Reports, I am trying to make the development process as open as
possible.

I had a wacky idea which I hope some of you will enjoy:

I will be holding a roundtable discussion about Ruport this
sunday(2006.07.08) from 19:30 -> 20:30 EST on the Freenode channel
#ruport

This will hopefully be a good chance to talk about the progress thus
far this summer, as well as the goals for the coming months.

It’ll also be a great opportunity for people to ask any questions they
might have about the software, or to throw around any ideas they might
have for how to make Ruport better.

It’s also a chance for folks to meet Ruport’s newest developer, Dudley
Flanders, who has been incredibly helpful in recent weeks.

So, anyone who is interested in the library itself or just wants to
stop by to lurk and scope out the scene, please join us!

I’ll post a transcript of the discussion online after it is completed,
for those who cannot make it.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

-greg

Is that 2006-07-09 UTC 00:30? I’m asking because I’d have expected
your time to be given in EDT because as far as I can see you’re in
daylight savings now. A useful link for others as well:

Kind regards

Oh, blast. I hate time zones / daylight savings!
I am GMT -5

This is my time:

Or -4 due to daylight savings. Man this gets confusing
I’ll post times in UTC for online meetings in the future… sorry folks

I used timeanddate.com to make a counter:

Next week’s Ruby Q.: find out what time it is where Greg lives.
(This is an expert-level problem.) :wink:

I hope you’re not joking. I could use a script that smart. :wink:

problem is, I am someone who abhors clocks (JEG2 knows this, via my
complaints of the over abundance of them in his home), so I have hard
time… telling time.

I’ve accidentally miscalculated the easiest possible conversion many
times so far this summer, eastern to pacific. Sorry to my SoC mentor
for that! :slight_smile:

The worldclock link I posted earlier is an excellent site for handling
that. For example, I put my collection of cities in a URL and have a
FF keyword on it - so I just need to type “clock” in the address bar
and get an overview page with all city times I’m interested in.

Sample:
