Even better.  We now have team meetings 5 days a week (Monday - Friday, 
with some exceptions for holidays) from 10am to midnight, US Eastern 
time.  Like all meetings, sometimes we adjourn early, and sometimes we 
run late.

Even if we do have a time, we are going to cut out a lot of people who 
are sleeping during the 1 hour period, or are at work and are unable to 
get on IRC.  This was the case when we had our weekly meetings: we were 
always getting complaints from people who wished to participate but 
could not make our meeting times, no matter when we scheduled it.  We 
feel the longer and more frequent meeting time allows more people to 
join in.  Still, if there are people who are unable to make it to our 
meetings, we invite them to use our mailing list.
