  • @fluteflute if you want to answer the Town Hall questions in the chat room after the fact, just notify me somehow and I will include them in my "digest" version.

  • @Josh Thank you, that's very kind. Would you mind if I just edited your posts to add them myself?

As with the other town hall chats, I will be creating a "digest" version. This will be posted as one large Meta question. The digest will contain all the questions and their answers, with none of the other conversation from the room.

For more information, please see the meta post about Town Hall Digests

7-9th works for me as a range. I'm really not fussy which day.

Timing this is more awkward though. I'm UK based and I'm less available in the early evening.. So 5-8pm UTC is not really an option for me. Earlier might be an issue for the America-based people but much later might be a problem for me again.

4pm UTC would be a good time for me.

    Replying to my email rather than adding an answer here could have worked... Commented Feb 4, 2011 at 15:57

    Your email first pointed to this thread and then told me to reply. I'm sorry that I took that to mean come here and then reply. Four candles?
