Good luck dealing with stuff! Knowing your capacity is a good thing.

I know the info is somewhere but can please someone remind me which time-zone 'starts' (is first) each day. Is it London-GMT? Thank you.

Hi, Josh—do you mean the country that leads us off first? Or the baseline?  We're sorting that now for our time keepers.

I'm not quite sure of the difference between the two. What's "The baseline"?

I guess my question is answered by which country starts first each day?
I am asking so as to co-ordinate with summerrain (not sure what timezone) as to how we can do our Number & Title Clerk duties best.

But I'll be checking over the 24 hour period anyway, not just only my 'waking time'.

Am beginning to feel revved up for writing poetry and am happy to divert my energies away from Covid-19 drama.

Hi, Josh, the baseline is GMT ( England ).  Australia leads us off at GMT +10, followed by the Philippines at GMT + 8, followed by South Africa at GMT + 2, and then the UK at baseline.  Everything else falls under.  

We have the participants and their respective countries and time zones - we are just waiting until tomorrow to see if anyone else registers.  

We will be posting in the NaPo group, so watch out for it.

BTW, aren't you a Number & Title Clerk?

Great. Thank you for that.

"BTW, aren't you a Number & Title Clerk?"
Yes, as far as I know, that's what I'm reckoning.

Okay, great.

Does that mean I have the good graces of being in Napo country first?
