Umm... Tuesday @ 1:00pm Pacific is still Tuesday in Britain, not Wednesday.

So I guess there should be a clarification as to whether this is a Tuesday slot or a Wednesday slot in Europe.

Hey, I'm trying to connect to the chat room now, but all I'm getting is 'connecting...' - I was able to get in earlier but for some reason it's stopped working. Just wanted to check and see if there were any known problems?

Edit: - Scratch that, it's working again :)

Damn, sorry I missed it again. Sound like some good topics. My desktop is finally set up (with cable!) in the new apartment, albeit sitting on top of a wobbly card table that sort of scares me a bit, so maybe next time!

Out of curiosity, was the "person who cannot keep secrets" 口が軽い 「くち が かるい」
With the opposite (tight-lipped) being 口が堅い? 「くち が かたい」
