looks fine with me. Right now, I'm translating 1600 utc to 9 am in California.
I think it's 8 hours difference, Jack, making the start time 8am Pacific.

The start time is 9:00 am PST.

California is 7 hours behind UTC, and the UK is 1 hour ahead of the UTC.

Anyone who would like to double check their local time versus UTC prior of the conference call, can do so here:

Apologies for my bail out from the call; my new computer and its inept user conspired to make my the computer grind causing me to catch snippets of conversation through a passing freight train of static before booting the call off altogether. I hope it didn't interrupt things for anyone else, and I look forward to catching up from Simon and Jeff's record of the event.
No problem, Chris: and it was great that you were able to join us during the first part of the call.

Jeff's map (which will be available soon via Mark Aakhus's Citrix Compendium site) gives an excellent overview of the rest of the meeting—and please feel free to add anything to the map that you think that we missed during the meeting.

Thanks for letting us know, Simon.

I'm not sure that anyone would have made it through the whole three hours anyway :-)
