  • Does the Sun ever set on all members of Forum?

    Has anyone ever tracked the wide range of members of this forum across a map of the world?

    I was thinking, with a few members off to the Mid-East conflict, and members from South Africa to New Zealand, does the sun ever set on all members of this forum?

    Or do we need to recruit members? If so, where? India?

    Good post Phil.

      If we had some members in Antartica, than we would be sure to have it covered!

        To answer my own question:

        Using the US Navy's web World Time Zone Map:

        Starting at the Navy's Zulu time zone:

        The UK looks to be about 4 hours away from the Canadian Maritime Provinces.

        Our membership have the East cost to the West cost of North America covered.

        From Oregon and B.C. to Alaska looks to be 2 time zones away.

        Now from Alaska to New Zealand, it gets confusing to me, but I am guessing it to be either 3 or 4 time zones apart.

        From New Zealand to Twain is 4 time zones apart.

        From Twain to Iraq is 5 time zones apart.

        Iraq to South Africa is 1 time zone.

        From South Africa to Spain and UK is 2 time zones.

        So we just may make it except for December in Alaska.

        Does anyone know if we have a members from / in Hawaii?

        Any volunteers to Move?

            Phil,

            As bad as my sleeping habits, you wouldn't need to worry if people are up through the whole 24 hour period. But I know, you are talking about the sun.

              Nope, don't wanna deal with volcanos in Hawaii but we do have at least one member in South Africa and one in New Zealand So to answer your question, no, the sun does not set on all members of the forum at the same time. Go to our map at http://www.frappr.com/sswc There is also an announcement in the Welcome Members board titled "The Map". Hope this helps.

                  I hadn't checked on the map in some time and I am happy to see so many members on there.
                  The map was better quality when it first went online, we could even see Taffy's horses from the air, but they service dummied down the resolution.
                  I did a search on the board for members in Hawaii, best I could find was a guest who was moving there.

                  I am planning a vacation there in 2009, how about I take my hand fretsaw and cut on the beach

                      Aside:

                      Don't forget a real big help in the map was our sometimes poster MinotBob over in Taiwan. That location really helped out in making the jump to Middle East time zone.

                              I will also flood. I guess the lake level will be way up there.
                              I guess I'd better start looking for a sale on a good submersible pump.

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...
