At breakfast this morning (only toast and juice, don’t get all mouth-watery) Amoeba asked me why I didn’t have rotating posting times for Punny Monday. He pointed out that rotating posting times would be more fair to my players world-wide and everybody would have a chance at a decent time zone every now and then. I told him that I had considered it before, but I just wasn’t very good at keeping things like that straight in my head anymore and if I made a schedule I’d probably just lose it anyway.
No sooner had I said that then the obvious solution popped into my head — the calendar! So, from now on:
- 1st Monday: 1:01 a.m.
- 2nd Monday: 2:01 a.m.
- 3rd Monday: 3:01 a.m.
- 4th Monday: 4:01 a.m.
- 5th Monday: 12:01 a.m.
The solution is remarkably straight forward and easy. Not even I can lose every calendar in the house, on our cell phones, and on the computer all at once, and the formula for figuring out what time is easy!
Next Sunday, August 15th, 2010, Punny Monday will post at 3:01 a.m. PDST. Please be aware that there will be a one hour shift in a couple of months when daylight savings time ends, but if it doesn’t catch me unaware, I’ll announce the change.
I hope this meets with your approval!
