I'd like to also ask for a different day to be considered.  For most of 
this year I've had standing customer commitments that preclude my attending 
a Tuesday meeting virtually every week and I don't expect this to change.

I think if we move more than an hour earlier, we lose the US west coast.  
It's been long enough since I could attend, I don't know how many people 
that affects.

Personally, I could generally make 12 - 21 UTC if it weren't on Tuesday.
