  • 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.

    For a few weeks in the summer, the sun doesn't set on me or Rivari

      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.

                                SSWWC and the older CWWC magazines were and are still a great source of for my Christmas ornaments. I can't count the times we have gone through the issues an said "how did we miss this one". I agree I was disappointed with the lack of Christmas and holiday patterns in last years Winter edition....

                                Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                                And on each cloud touching the body ?
                                I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                                Thanks

                                I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                                Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                                What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...
