Brazil: I am

Michael C: ah - I remember!

Brazil: It's me

Vance: That's you?

Michael C: That's sounds reasonably serious.

Vance: Nice. You can see my pic on my web page

Brazil: i am laughing

Brazil: I will vance

Brazil: I am smiling in the pic..

Vance: They said that no one had actually exploited the hole, only that they discovered it is possible

Michael C: Are you taking an EFI class this time round Vance?

Brazil: Vance and Michael, could you send me your pics ?

Vance: Yeah, I'm teaching on Tuesday

Vance: Brazil, you can download my pic from the web page at ...

Brazil: oh ok


Michael C: What time? (I guess I could check the schedule...)

Brazil: Michael ?

Vance: I teach at 11 gmt on Tuesday (to 1300)

Vance: And I need to ask you if you teach at that time on Sunday

Michael C: Same thing -

Vance: because Felix has just asked for a class at that time

Vance: Actually, it's good to teach back to back, more convenient for the students

Brazil: I wanted to meet more students but the schedule is a big problem

Michael C: My class time is 11.00 pm locally so that's about 3 or 4 pm GMT.

Brazil: what do you mean Vance ?

Vance: I mean, if a student comes to my class at noon GMT

Brazil: I am completely lost at GMT

Vance: Oh, it's 14:30 gmt right now

Brazil: So GMT is 3 hours ahead of me

Vance: Double click on the clock at the lower left of your MS Window

Michael C: So that means I start this class at 13.30 GMT.

Vance: and select "time zone"

Brazil: oh ok

Vance: And you will see what time it is where you are in relation to GMT

Vance: One trick: London is GMT plus 1

Brazil: oh ok thanks

Michael C: I gotta go guys....I'm working on some muisc listening exercises for EFI students.

Vance: I've got to run. My wife is expecting me to pick her up from shpping

Vance: music listening ... cool
